Firefighters issued a warning against leaving cooking unattended after being called to a fire in Preston from which a dog was rescued.
The incident happened in Ainsdale Drive, Ashton-on-Ribble on Saturday lunchtime and involved a pan which had been left on the stove while no-one was in the house.
Crews from Preston and Penwortham stations used a lock snapper to gain access to the property and the one hose reel, two breathing apparatus and a positive ventilation fan to extinguish the fire.
A dog was rescued and the firefighters were at the home for 40 minutes.
Afterwards a brigade spokesman warned: "Never leave cooking unattended and leave a property."
