Bailey Mill near Saddleworth collapses as fire rips through the building – June 14, 2016
Firefighters are currently tackling a huge fire at a derelict mill in Oldham.
Video footage from the scene shows huge flames licking up through the windows of the Bailey Mill, in Delph.
A number of 999 calls were made to North West Fire Control when the fire broke out at around 3.12pm this afternoon.
Four fire crews are currently tackling the blaze at the seven-storey building, on Delph New Road.
Firefighters found the building was ‘well alight’ on arrival and are currently using an aerial appliance to try and tackle the flames.
Station manager’s statement
Station Manager Bob Pownell, who is in charge of the incident, has given an update on the situation at the mill.
He said: “The building is ablaze and firefighters are working hard to tackle the fire using an aerial appliance, ground monitors and jets.
“Crew members are tackling the fire from a safe distance as the structure of the building is unsafe and around half of it has collapsed.
“We want to remind people to avoid the area if they can and that we are dealing with the incident as quickly as we can.”
