Fire near Saddleworth Moor rages on for third day

About 50 homes have been evacuated on the outskirts of Manchester in northern England as 100 firefighters battle a blaze that has been spreading for days near Saddleworth Moor.  The fire has been declared a major incident. Wind and hot weather over the last three days have caused the fire to spread and police say its size and the fact they have limited road access to the rural area made it difficult to tackle the blaze .
