An aerial ladder platform from Hyndburn was also called to the property. Fire crews wearing breathing apparatus used to hosereels and a triple ladder extension to put the fire out.

They spent an hour-and-a-half at the scene and used a thermal imaging camera to check for hot spots. A ventilation fan was also necessary to clear smoke from the home.
