A DERELICT building at a disused farm was again targeted by firebugs last night.

Three crews were called to Fylde Farm on Normoss Road at 8pm after reports of a blaze.

Crews from Bispham, Blackpool and South Shore Fire Station brought it under control within an hour.

Nobody was injured in the fire, however, watch manager Mark Warwick, from Blackpool Fire Station, said: “With the state of repair it’s in it was quite a dangerous situation.

“It’s only a matter of time before someone gets hurt.

“We had three appliances there and the cover for other fires on the Fylde coast was diminished while we were there dealing with an avoidable job.”
