Rochdale house fire: Seven people and a puppy rescued

  • 12-29-2014

Seven people and a puppy have been rescued after a car fire in Rochdale set a nearby house ablaze.

Firefighters were called to Manchester Road, Castleton, at 03:30 GMT after an "intense fire" started in a Volkswagen Golf and left a family trapped.

Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service said four adults and three children were pulled from the house.

Two people returned to the two-storey building to attempt to save the puppy and were rescued for a second time.

Station manager Paul Whittaker said: "The fire involving a car had rapidly come into contact with the ground floor windows, spreading to the rest of the property.

"Crew worked incredibly hard to carry out the safe rescue of so many people and get the fire under control."

An investigation has started to establish the cause of the blaze.
