This is the dramatic moment firefighters doused a car with water after it burst into flames beneath a railway archway in Manchester city centre.
A crew from Salford station rushed to Kelso Place, in Castlefield, at around 8.24pm this evening (March 25).
Footage filmed by a neighbour living in a flat close to the scene shows firefighters working to quell the flames and bring the fire under control.
At one point a train can be seen passing on the bridge above.
One resident told the M.E.N they had heard an ‘explosion’ just before the fire broke out.
A spokesperson for Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service confirmed details of the incident.
They said: “At 8.24pm on Thursday March 25 firefighters were called to reports of a fire involving one vehicle on Kelso Place in Manchester.
“One fire engine from Salford station quickly attended the scene.
“Firefighters worked to make the scene safe using breathing apparatus, a house reel, a thermal imaging camera and break in gear.
