One person was taken to hospital after breathing in smoke when a fire broke out in a basement of a house in Knott End.

Firefighters from Preesall, Bispham, and Blackpool were called to the house, on the Esplanade, at around 5.20pm yesterday.

They wore breathing masks and used a water jet to put out the flames, and a fan to clear the smoke.
