Fire crews tackled a blaze involving a mobile crane on the A54 in Tarporley.

The fire broke out at around 7am today (November 19).

Four fire engines attended – from Chester, Northwich, Ellesmere Port and one from Powey Lane.

Fire crews attended to reports of a mobile crane on fire on Kelsall Hill in Tarporley.

Wearing two breathing apparatus, one hose reel jet and two hose reels have been used to put out the fire.

The crane was checked using the thermal imaging camera.

The A54 has been closed in both directions with traffic diverting through Tarvin due to fuel leaking onto the carriageway.
