Greater Manchester KFC set on fire by burning car
A fast food restaurant has shut after a burning car rolled through the drive-thru and set the building on fire.
Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) restaurant in Alphagate Drive, Denton Rock, Denton, Greater Manchester, caught fire shortly after 13:00 BST on Sunday.
The fire service said it took three fire crews about an hour to tackle the "car fire which had spread to a fast food restaurant".
Greater Manchester Police (GMP) said it was not thought to be suspicious.
There were no reports of injuries, the force said.
GMP said it received a report a car was ablaze and it set fire to a nearby building at about 13:30 BST.
Dean Gardner, who took pictures of the aftermath, said KFC staff told him the car was already on fire as it pulled up to the restaurant order window.
A KFC spokesperson said: "We're proud of the quick thinking and brave actions of our team members, and immensely relieved that no one was hurt.
"The damage is being assessed but we hope to welcome back our fans by the end of the week."
