The fire broke out at the KFC in Alphagate Drive, Denton, Greater Manchester just after 1pm on Sunday.

Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service said it took three fire engines around an hour to tackle the "car fire which had spread to a fast food restaurant".

They added: "Firefighters used three hose reels, six breathing apparatus, one thermal imaging camera and a thermal scanner to deal with the fire and were at the scene for around one hour."

KFC has been contacted for comment.
