    Fire In Saddleworth

    There’s a huge fire on Saddleworth Moor and nearby properties are being evacuated. Now that’s quite a distance from where I live but the smoke is definitely close by. Have had to close all windows, the smell is that bad and have put purifier on max. Is this enough to protect Ruby or is there...
