RUBBISH fire got out of control and spread to a bin and a garden fence.

Firefighters from Bury Station had to respond to a call from a neighbour in York Street who could see a fence on fire a few doors up.

Watch manager Keith Hadley said: "They said they were getting rid of some rubbish and went inside.

"It was quite near the bin, it set that on fire, set the fence on fire."

The crew was called at around 9pm and were on the scene for about an hour said Mr Hadley.
