Four fire engines and an aerial ladder platform were called to a fire involving a farm house in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Crews from Burnley, Padiham and Hyndburn attended the incident at Miste Farm, Burnley Road, Hapton, at around 3am on Saturday.

Extra resources were required to set up a water relay so firefighters could access enough water to extinguish the fire.

Crews had to put out the blaze from the aerial ladder platform, as the building was deemed unsafe to fight the flames from inside.

A spokesperson for the fire service said: "Padiham were turned out this morning alongside Burnley and Hyndburn and the police, to a large building fire.

"Great work from the ALP to get the fire under control where firefighters couldn't be committed to the building for safety reasons."

No injuries were reported and crews remained at the property, damping down and checking for hot spots late into Saturday morning.

The incident is now under joint investigation with the police to determine the cause of the fire.
