Fire appliances from McDonald Road, Crewe Toll, Marionville (including two height appliances) and a Command Support Unit from Dunfermline went to the restaurant and discovered a fire in the kitchen had spread to the roof space which was well alight.
Eight firefighters in breathing apparatus used high pressure hose reels to tackle the fire which was also fought from above using height platforms to reach the roof area which had caught fire.
No casualties were reported although crews had to work in challenging weather conditions for around two hours.
Roads closures were put in place by police to allow the fire services to deal with the fire.
The Granary reports on Twitter this morning that the restaurant is fine.
The Granary would like to thank everyone for there kindness tonight! We are all safe and well a massive THANKYOU 🙂
