Fire crews from Hyndburn, Burnley and Nelson attended a fire at a derelict property on Adelphi Street, Burnley. When they arrived at the scene they found smoke was issuing from the 2nd floor window and roof space.  It was initially unclear whether there may have been people still inside the building and so crews gained entry and confirmed there were no casualties involved. They extinguished the fire using a hose reel and a 10.5m ladder. The fire is currently under joint investigation alongside the Police.
