Fire crews tackled a blaze in a derelict building in Newhall near Nantwich which caused the busy A530 to be closed.

The fire broke out around 9.30am today (January 14) in the first floor of a property on Whitchurch Road.

Two fire engines – one from Nantwich and one from Audlem – attended and found the first floor alight.

A thermal imaging camera was also used by firefighters.

The road was closed as a precaution and a cordon was put in place.

Cheshire Fire say it is believed the fire started accidentally and damage was contained to the first floor bedroom.
