Manchester properties evacuated during storm

19/06/2009


A number of properties in the Manchester area had to be evacuated last night (June 18th) during a thunderstorm.

Around 30 people in total had to leave their homes on Oakwood Lane in Altrincham after lightening struck a house and caused a blaze, the BBC reports.

The property in question is located in the middle of block of five and there was a risk that the flames could have spread to neighbouring homes.

Commenting on the incident, station commander Paul Etches said: "Lightening hitting a house and causing a major fire is extremely unusual."

He added that the woman who was occupying the house in Altrincham, which is situated within the metropolitan borough of Trafford, heard a loud crack and gushing water.

She then looked out of her property to see neighbours gathered round staring at her roof.

At this point, she went out to join them and realised that the roof was on fire.
