Firefighters arrived in Ribblesdale Drive where they used one hose reel and a thermal imaging camera to extinguish the fire.

Chris Rainford from Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service (LFRS) took to social media to reveal the photos.

Chris said: "Another superb example this morning of LFRS drone helping dictate tactics at a propane cylinder incident in Forton.

"We were able to zoom in from 150m away to show the Incident Commander the extent of the fire, without committing firefighters."
