Firefighters were called to tackle a kitchen fire in Colne this lunchtime.

Two fire engines from the town's station were called to Lady Hartley Road just after noon.

A microwave had set on fire so crews used positive pressure ventilation for smoke clearance and they were at the property for around half an hour.

There was one casualty who was treated for the effects of smoke inhalation.
