An investigation has been launched after a fire broke out in flats on Euston Road.

Six fire engines turned up to a block of four storey flats on Euston Road on Saturday evening (November 19).

Crews from Morecambe, Lancaster, Bolton-le-Sands, Carnforth, Hornby and Garstang arrived at around 5.44pm after reports of a person trapped inside.

Firefighters went inside the building using breathing apparatus but there was no one trapped inside.

The fire, which broke out on the top floor, has caused damage to the roof and building.

Euston Road remained closed yesterday (Sunday) as firefighters worked through the night to extinguish the fire and carried out checks until the building was deemed safe.

The cause of the fire is unknown and an investigation is ongoing and the road and businesses are now open.
