The team at CIA 2000 are gutted to witness this type of destruction on our doorstep, not only to the local communities but to the local wildlife.

CIA  would like to give our thanks and appreciation to the emergency services and everybody else involved with fighting the fire on Saddleworth Moor.

According to the MEN the fire is the worst of its type in living history and is still raging.
