Firefighters have tackled a fire involving the roofs of a number of houses in Oldham.
Four fire engines and an aerial platform were called to Belmont Street at 12.25pm on Thursday, January 21, 2016.
North West Fire Control received several calls after smoke was seen across Oldham.
The fire is believed to have started in an end terraced house and spread through the roof spaces of two adjoining houses.
Part of the roofing collapsed and a local authority dangerous buildings inspector was requested.
Station Manager Steve Twinn, who was in charge of the incident, said:
"Crews have worked really hard to bring the fire under control and we have now reduced the number of fire engines to two.
"Firefighters are damping down the fire and there will be one engine on Belmont Street overnight."
An investigation into the cause will be carried out tomorrow and roads in the area are now open.
