Firemen were called out this lunchtime to a pile of waste well alight on land off a Clitheroe residential street.

A crew from Clitheroe Fire Station used one hose reel to extinguish a rubbish fire that had accidentally started from an incinerator in Ribblesdale Avenue.

They were called out at just before 12-15pm today and spent about 40 minutes dealing with the fire.
