FIREFIGHTERS were called to a boarded-up house in Raglan Road, Burnley, early this morning after it was torched by vandals.

Someone had pulled back the board covering the rear downstairs window and set fire to items inside around 1-10 a.m..

Crews said there was no one living in the property and they spent around 20 minutes putting out the flames. Fire damage was caused to carpet and floorboards.
