FIREFIGHTERS were called out to a fire at a house in Burnley.

The crews arrived at the empty property in Queensbury Road at 6-30am today to find smoke coming from the bottom of the door.

Officers believe somebody threw a lit object through the window above the door which then set fire to a pile of rubbish.

One hose reel was used to extinguish the fire.
