A fire tore through a third floor flat in Blackpool as emergency services were forced to close the road while they tackled the flames.

Part of Queen Street was cordoned off on Thursday night while firefighters got the blaze under control.

A spokesman for Lancashire Fire and Rescue said: “We got a call at 9pm to a third floor flat, which was well alight, on Queen Street.

“Both engines from Blackpool attended.”

It was not immediately clear what damage the fire caused or if anyone was inside the flat at the time.
