The fire was extinguished using a hose-reel.

A spokesperson for Lancashire Fire Service said: "We would like to remind members of the public to only put their bins out on days when rubbish is collected. Taking your bin back to your property on non-collection days will help to prevent it from being set alight."

Nobody was injured.
