Police cordoned off Middleton Old Road, as well as Old Market Street - the junction leading to Blackley village.

The cordon was lifted at around 3pm.

A spokesperson for Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service (GMFRS) said: “At around 12:10pm on Wednesday 11 May, we were called out to reports of a fire at a derelict building on Old Market Street in Blackley.

“Three fire engines from Philips Park, Chadderton and Heywood, as well as an aerial ladder platform from Oldham, were in attendance. Crews used two hose reels, four breathing apparatus and a thermal imaging camera in getting the fire under control.

“Fire crews were at the scene for approximately three hours.”

GMP has been contacted for comment.
