A blaze has broken out at a popular country pub.
Firefighters from Preston and Penwortham were called to The Dolphin Inn, also known as the Flying Fish, in Marsh Lane, Longton, at 6.10am on Tuesday.
Two officers wearing breathing equipment were able to contain the fire in the laundry room, and a fan was used to clear smoke from the surrounding area.
How the fire started is not currently known.
The pub and restaurant will open as normal at noon.
