Cotton factory in the midst of flames

Jan '08
Blazing fire busted out at a cotton manufacturers firm in Burnley today. The fire is still being dealt by a crew of four firemen.

The premise on Cleaver Street caught fire at around 7AM in the morning and sources believe that the mishap occurred because of a piece of machinery catching fire.

Hose reels, jets and ventilation units are being used to deal with the fire. Information about both the first and the second floor of the building catching fire has been reported.

Burnley, a large town in Lancashire, England, once considered to be one of the world's largest producer of cotton cloth, has lost much of its industry, today.
