ROADS have been re-opened following a barn fire in Norley on Friday (April 13).
Four fire engines - one from Frodsham, one from Winsford and two from Runcorn - attended the blaze after reports that there was a large fire in a single storey disused shop and outbuildings on Fingerpost Lane at 2.49pm.
Firefighters, including two wearing breathing apparatus, used two hose reel jets and two main jets to fight the blaze at the buildings, which cover an area of about five metres by 10 metres.
Two hose reel jets were directed toward an adjoining property to protect it.
Police closed Fingerpost Lane between the junctions of Cheesehill Lane/Cow Lane and Hough Lane while firefighters tackled the blaze.
By 4.30pm, firefighters had put out the main fire and began attacking hot spots using a water shuttle, one main jet and two hose reel water jets.
At 5pm, crews damped down using a hose reel water jet and removed roof tiles while a fire investigation officer at the scene began work to establish the cause of the blaze.
Confirming there were no remaining hotspots, crews handed over the property to the owner at 6.45pm nd the road was reopened.
