Fire crews have tackled a blaze at the back of a home in Alsager.

It broke out shortly after 8 o'clock last night in the back garden of a domestic property in Moorhouse Avenue.

On arrival crews discovered that a fire involving a large amount of tree cuttings, which were well alight, had spread to a garden shed and was also affecting garages.

Firefighters extinguished the fire with a hose reel jet.

They then damped down the areas affected by it to make them safe.

The fire did not breach the garages or affect properties.

Firefighters were in attendance for around 45 minutes.
