The blaze began at around 2am on Saturday morning at Armadillo self-storage in Cheadle, Greater Manchester.

Local residents were told to close their doors and windows as the fire raged on through the night.

Crews from stations around Greater Manchester Fire Service have been deployed to the serious incident on the Stanley Green Omdistrial Estate, Cheadle and the situation is ongoing, according to Manchester Evening News.

They tweeted at 3:38am: " Firefighters are also responding to a separate incident on Greek Street in Stockport.

A second image depicted the commercial property glowing red from flames against the night sky as smoke rose upwards from the top of the building.

Another picture shared by a user on social media displayed a view of the fire from Wilmslow 5 miles away, with a large smoke plume seen drifting to the left of the storage centre.
