A HUGE inferno is raging in Manchester city centre in Ardwick after a factory caught fire and eyewitnesses claim they even saw explosions.
“We were called at 6.53pm to reports of a commercial industrial fire on Hyde Road.
"Firefighters have been drafted in from across Manchester, Trafford and Stockport."
An eyewitness told the Manchester Evening News that there were three explosions.
It is believed the fire took hold of an old brick building which backs on to Apsley Grove, near to the Apsley Cottage Inn.
