Police are investigating a fire which destroyed a campervan parked overnight in a residential street in Preston.

LEP reader Damian Klemczak took this picture at the height of the blaze in Chaucer Street, Ribbleton in the early hours of Tuesday.

Firefighters used hose reels to put out the fire, which caused heat damage to a nearby house.

A fire brigade spokesman at Preston said: “The campervan was well alight when we got there. The severity of the blaze led to some slight heat damage to the windows of the property where it was parked.

“We are not sure at this stage what caused the fire. Police were informed and an investigation is ongoing to ascertain if it was deliberate.”
