PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! A mum-of-one has lost everything she owns after a huge warehouse blaze destroyed a storage facility in Denton. Lisa Seaborn, 39, had transferred all of her personal belongings including her clothes, furniture and son's toys into the unit ahead of moving house, when the fire started at the weekend. Hundreds of firefighters were deployed to tackle the blaze at the three-storey building on Holland Street on Sunday (February 21). A major incident was declared by Greater Manchester Police as a number of homes in the vicinity had to be evacuated. The M67 motorway had to be closed in both directions as plumes of thick, black smoke could be seen for miles around.

But due to a delay in the chain the move was pushed back, and Lisa decided to go and stay with her mum Anne temporarily. She had moved all of her furniture, and personal items from her rented flat in Denton, and purchased a large storage container from Self Storage Tameside. Her belongings had been there less than a week when she was informed about the devastating blaze.

"Lisa is a single mum and a care assistant. She has been bringing up her son in rented accommodation and I offered to help her get a deposit for a house in Denton. "We thought she was going to be able to move in on Friday but there was a hold up with the chain. "The landlady of the flat Lisa was renting had already sold it so I said Lisa and Louie could come and stay with me."

Anne said she decided not to pay for insurance when she booked the unit, as Lisa had only planned to keep her belongings there for two weeks. "Everything she owned was in there," she said. "Only one thing survived and that was the hoover because she forgot to pack it and so brought it to mine with her. "Luckily, she also decided to take some framed photographs out as she didn’t want them to get smashed or damaged. "She had only just purchased a new three piece suite and still has two years left to pay for that even though it’s been destroyed." Other items such as Lisa's TV, Skybox, washing machine, fridge freezer, wardrobes, beds and all of her clothes were stored in the warehouse at the time of the fire. Two boxes of Louie’s toys were in there and all his furniture too. Following the fire, Anne received an email from Self Storage Tameside, confirming that her daughter's belongings had been affected by the blaze. The email said: "Further to the incident which occurred at our facility on 21 February 2021. "Unfortunately, we are writing to confirm that your items contained within our store have been affected by the fire.

. "Thank you for your patience." Firefighters damping down at the scene in Denton (Image: Manchester Evening News) A close friend of the family has set up a gofundme page to raise money for Lisa to replace some of the items she lost in the fire. The page has already raised over £1,600. Neighbours and members of the local community have also offered to donate items of furniture. "We are so blessed to have so many good friends and neighbours. Everyone has been amazing," Anne said. "It’s okay at the moment because they are living with me but when they do move into the new house that’s when we will have to start getting all the new furniture. "Lisa is devastated but she has had so much comfort from her friends and family so I don’t think she has had the time to process the loss but she is so happy people have rallied around."
