Fire At Old Trafford!

A blaze broke out at Manchester United's Old Trafford ground on Wednesday and the the Fire Service were called into action.

The blaze started shortly before noon at the rear terrace on the seventh floor of the stadium where construction work was being carried out.

The flames were put out within 40 minutes by three fire engines and an aerial appliance, a Manchester Fire Service spokeswoman said.

Fire Service spokeswoman: 'At 12.01pm the Fire Service received one call to a fire at the rear of the terrace at Manchester United Football Club on Sir Matt Busby Way, Old Trafford.

'It was the area of the terrace which is currently a construction site. The fire was in the North End and was located on the seventh floor involving scaffolding, propane cylinders and associated equipment.'

A spokesman for Manchester United: 'It did not affect the rest of the stadium. It was just a minor fire and only a couple of fire engines attended.

'It was put out very quickly and nobody was evacuated. The damage looks superficial, there's probably a bit of black wood somewhere.

'We're just waiting for the report from the constructors. We might get that later today.

'There were no knock-on effects for the rest of the stadium.'
