A SKIP fire which had spread to guttering at a nearby house had to be tackled by firefighters on Saturday night.

One fire engine attended the scene in Knutsford Road, Wilmslow, at 10.58pm on September 19.

The Wilmslow fire crew found that the skip was well alight and used a hose reel jet to put out the flames.

The scene was then checked using a thermal imaging camera.

Firefighters were in attendance for just under one hour.
