RESIDENTS are being offered reassurance following last week's fatal house fire in Walkden.

Siblings Demi, Brandon, Lacie and Lia Pearson died in the blaze in Jackson Street in the early hours of last Monday.

Firefighters, community safety advisors and volunteers from Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service, along with staff from Salford City Council, City West Housing and Victim Support, were out in the area on yesterday and Tuesday.

The teams were giving out fire safety advice and offering Safe and Well visits, fitting smoke alarms and helping people stay safe in their homes.

Beverley Hughes, Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime, said: “Our thoughts remain with the family and friends of those involved in this heart-breaking incident.

“The community pulled together in this unimaginably difficult time and we are making sure that they are supported and feel safe by visiting nearly 200 houses in the nearby area."
