A portacabin blaze at the site of Altrincham Football Club’s Moss Lane stadium has been tackled by fire crews.

Manchester Fire crews have since extinguished the blaze.

The road was closed in all directions and fire chiefs advised residents to avoid the area after the fire burned for approximately half an hour.

People have taken to social media sites to post pictures of the fire.

 Chris Canning took to Twitter and said: “Altrincham football club on fire… The smokes insane.”

 Another Twitter user, Altincham HQ, believes the clubhouse is on fire.

 Other users thought that the intense smoke was nothing to do with a fire.
