Eight fire engines, a stinger and an aerial ladder platform from Preston, Fulwood, Bamber Bridge, Lancaster, Penwortham and Blackburn were called to a fire involving a grain dryer, containing a large amount of grain, in an outbuilding on New Lane in Claughton-on-Brock. Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used two hose reel jets, a fog spike and a thermal imaging camera to bring the fire under control.
