Thornton Street was a Weatherfield street which was the site of a major fire in June 2013.

The conflagration was started by a dropped cigarette and saw six houses gutted. Paul Kershaw was one of the firemen in attendance and his brave actions resulted in the saving of a young boy, Paddy Kinsey who was trapped in the upstairs of one of the houses. Paul, seeing a child’s bike out the back, thought there might be someone inside. He went in there and pulled Paddy out as his mother, Megan screamed in hysterics at the front. Just seconds after Paul emerged, the floor collapsed.
