Car Fire leaves debris in Saddleworth road

DEBRIS was left littered on a Saddleworth road after an early morning fire. 

A stray wheel could be seen on Chapel Road, which runs between Uppermill and Greenfield, as well as a burnt area.

Now Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service (GMFRS) has confirmed it was the site of a blaze that involved a car.

And a GMFRS spokesman told the Saddleworth Independent: “At 4:05am on Wednesday, April 27, one fire engine from Oldham fire station responded to a vehicle fire on Chapel Road, Greenfield.
