Probe into Burnley house blaze


FIREFIGHTERS are investigating a suspicious blaze at a house in Burnley this morning.

Crews were called to the mid-terraced property in Bar Street at 7-25am after neighbours reported smoke coming into their homes.

No one was in the house where the fire started and firefighters wearing breathing apparatus spent an hour tackling the blaze. They then used a ventilation unit to rid the building and the neighbouring homes of smoke.

A fire brigade spokesman said the house could be under renovation. An investigation has been launched into the cause of the fire.
