A branch of builders merchant Huws Gray in Woodford, Stockport went up in flames last night.
Six crews from Greater Manchester and Cheshire attended the fire at the branch at around 6.15pm, on Monday February 8th.
Residents in the area were advised to keep windows and doors shut as a precaution due to smoke. Crews remain on the scene.

“The public are advised to avoid the area for now and keep doors and windows shut. It is anticipated the fire service may be in attendance for a number of hours through the night.”
