A house in Oswaldtwistle has been ruined after a serious fire tore through the building on Friday afternoon.

Three crews from Lancashire Fire & Rescue Service rushed to the house on Queens Street at around 5pm and managed to bring the fire under control.

No injuries were reported as a result of the fire, but pictures show that very little was left to recover in the house.

An investigation is underway into what caused the incident.

A spokesperson for Lancashire Fire & Rescue Service said: "At 16:54hrs on 15th May 2020, three fire engines from Hyndburn and Blackburn attended a house fire on Queen Street Oswaldtwistle.

"Two hose reels, 4 breathing apparatus, a ventilation fan and thermal imaging camera were used in the operation. An investigation is underway.

"Firefighters extinguished the fire after three hours 45 minutes at the scene. No injuries were reported."
