More than 50 firefighters are tackling a blaze at a wedding venue in Cheshire.

Crews were called to reports of a fire at a property on Nantwich Road, Tilstone Fearnall.

Four crews were initially dispatched to the scene and on arrival crews discovered a large 19th century timber frame mansion which was well alight.

Upon initial investigations firefighters found that the fire had spread to all three floors of the building.

Due to the scale of the fire an addition six fire engines were dispatched to the scene along with an aerial appliance from Chester.

The building has been split into for sectors and firefighters, wearing breathing apparatus, are currently hose reel jets to tackle the fire from within the building.

Crews are also using a number of main jets to fight the fire from outside the mansion. An aerial appliance and main jet are also being used to extinguish the fire from above.

Firefighters are also undertaking salvage operation to help recovery any furniture where possible.

There are no reports of any injuries.
