A FIRE has ripped through a barn near Ribchester.

At 7.45am, two crews from Blackburn, a crew from Hyndburn and two from Preston were called to Fleet Street Lane.

The teams used the Lancashire Fire Serivce's drone to look at the blaze from above.

A fire service spokesman said the crews were there for a couple of hours trying to put the fire out.

He said: "No one was injured but there was damage caused to the barn and hay inside.

"The cause of the fire is still under investigation."

Fire fighters are still at the scene making sure the fire is completely put out.
