A BLACKBURN road was closed for an hour after a fire at a shop.

The incident took place at around 6.35pm on Friday at a derelict off licence in Redlam.

Crew manager Paul Reid said: “We don’t know the cause of the fire as it started in a back bedroom.

“The property was closed and we had to gain entry through the top window via a ladder.

“The road was closed and the owner of the building arrived later on.

“Nobody was hurt in the incident and it is still being investigated.”
