Walkden bin arson sets shop gate alight on Bonfire Night
9:04pm Tuesday 5th November 2013 in News
ARSONISTS set fire to a waste bin in Walkden and the flames spread to a nearby shop, causing damage to a gate.
Firefighters dealt with the blaze in Memorial Road, Walkden just before 8pm on Bonfire Night.
They managed to put the blaze out swiftly but not before it had singed the rear gate of a neighbouring business.
The fire was started deliberately and the matter has been passed on to police.
The call out disrupted one of the busiest nights of the year for firefighters, as brigades across Bolton were called to numerous bonfires, most of which were false alarms.
