Fire crews were called to a blaze at a nursery in Burnley this afternoon.

Two pumps attended the incident at Buffer Bear Nursery, Briercliffe Road, after a washing machine caught fire in the laundry room.

Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus extinguished the blaze before a positive pressure fan was used to remove smoke from the premises.

Staff had closed the door to the laundry room to prevent smoke and fire spreading.
