FIREFIGHTERS believe a blaze which broke out in a Fleetwood flat was caused when a discarded cigarette ignited a carpet.

A crew from Fleetwood fire station was sent to Elsinore Close around 7.15pm yesterday following reports of a blaze in a bedroom.

Two firefighters wearing breathing apparatus put the fire out using a hose reel.

There was damage to five rooms.
