Fire fighters were called to a blaze at an empty property on Manor Avenue in Fulwood early this morning.
Two engines from Preston were alerted to the blaze at around 4.15am this morning (10 January) by a neighbour who heard the smoke alarm, say fire services.
Fire fighters arrived to find flames coming out of a side window.
Four breathing apparatuses, one hose-reel and a ventilation unit were used to combat the blaze and clear smoke from the property.
There are not thought to have been any casualties as a result of the incident.
An investigation is on-going into the cause of the fire.
