Residents around the area were warned to keep their windows and doors shut during the incident.
A spokesman for the fire service said: "We were called out to a fire in an outbuilding.
"We initially sent crews from Penwortham and Tarleton who found that a joiner's workshop was well alight and there was a risk of it spreading to the house.
"The teams then asked for extra fire engines to attend and they were largely concerned with relaying water to the incident.
"A hazardous materials team also attended after asbestos was found around the site.
"Police were called in to help with evacuations and road closures.
"Firefighters equipped with breathing apparatus used two main jets to fight the fire.
"Crews began damping down at the incident at around 4pm and remained at the scene until 9pm."
A number of road closures were in place around the area while emergency services dealt with the incident.
Fire services confirmed that nobody was injured, although the workshop was completely destroyed by fire.
