Fire crews spent more than two hours at a Preston joinery after a fire broke out in the roof.
Crews from the city’s station were called to Redman and Bispham on Roebuck Street in Ashton at 7.20pm on Tuesday after smoke was seen coming from the roof.
A spokesman for Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service said the fire had started from a wood burner in the premises.
He said: “We had to take off parts of the roof to get to the fire pockets which were difficult to reach due to some of the cladding and other parts getting in our way.
“The fire itself was fairly minor and confined to the wood burner and a 3x3-metre section of roofing.”
He said crews would return to the scene of the fire for further investigation work on Wednesday morning.
