Firefighters were called out to a house blaze in Clitheroe at the weekend.

A tumble dryer started the fire in the house on Kirkmoor Road on Saturday morning.

The householders were not at home at the time of the fire and it was a neighbour who called firefighters after hearing smoke alarms sounding in the property.

Firefighters used a hose reel jet to extinguish the fire.
