A service spokesman said: “Initial fears that someone might be trapped in a caravan on fire turned out to be mistaken but three fire engines and crews, from Fleetwood and Bispham, responded with search and rescue in prospect.

“In fact there were no casualties and firefighters used two hose reel jets to extinguish the fire.”

The cause of the fire is ‘yet to be established’ say the service.
