The blaze, at the empty former shop in Briercliffe Road, broke out at 3-45am and police closed a large section of the road, from Duke Bar, close to Thursby Road and as far as Rylands Street, while four fire engines from Burnley and Nelson and the aerial ladder platform from Hyndburn battled the flames.

The fire was on the second floor and firefighters used two hose reels, one jet, command support pack and a positive ventilation fan. No injuries have been reported.

The road has since been re-opened to traffic.
