AN electrical fire in a Knutsford home required two hours of firefighters' attention yesterday, Monday.

The fire broke out shortly before 1pm on New Year's Day, having taken hold in a living room of a detached house in Grove Park.

Firefighters, four wearing breathing apparatus, used a hose reel jet and a large fan to put out the fire.

Crews - one apiece from Lymm, Wilmslow and Altrincham - were at the scene for two hours.
