Crews from Blackpool were called to fire at a children's playground on Victory Road North Shore in the early hours of this morning (04 January 2017).

They arrived at around 12.30am to find a tent on fire on a covered sports pitch.

The fire was extinguished using a hose-reel.

The fire is thought to have been started deliberately, say fire services and investigations are ongoing.

Crew Manager Mark Preddy said: "Fires should not be played with or started for fun. This was a potentially serious incident and people could have been hurt."

No one was injured in the incident.
