Nine engines are at the site today with Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service staff working in the 24 degree heat.

Already new grass is sprouting in some areas which had been on fire.

Meanwhile, with more good weather to come in the next few days, volunteers at Bolton Mountain Rescue Team have created a map showing the area which walkers, cyclists and others are being urged to steer clear of.
