Fire blazes at The Ivy in Manchester

A massive blaze tears through The Ivy restaurant in Manchester Friday evening after opening only a month ago.

"I left work across the square and the building was on fire," said the filmer. "You could see the firefighters with their torches as they entered the building."

Roads in the city have been closed as firefighters tackle the flames.

The blaze reportedly broke out on the roof at around 5:00pm. A spokeswoman for the restaurant said "everyone is out and accounted for," reported Manchester Evening News.
