FIREFIGHTERS were called to a house in Grange Street, Burnley, after youths torched an extension at the back.

The group had set fire to a pile of rubbish which had spread to the unoccupied building at 11-20pm last night. Crews spent an hour-and-a-half tackling the flames but said there was no serious damage to the house.
