Emergency services called to attic fire in Blackpool home
Firefighters were called to put out a fire in the attic of a house in Blackpool.
Two crews from Blackpool and South Shore stations were sent to the property, just off Preston New Road, close to the Marton Mere Holiday Village, at around 1.20pm this afternoon, where they found the fire had already been put out.
Investigators said the fire involved felt in the attic, but said no casualties were reported.
Firefighters used a thermal imaging camera to check for hot-spots in the attic, and used a triple-extension ladder to remove roof tiles to check underneath them.
Crews worked at the scene for around 1.5 hours.
