Blaze in Preston church
A probe has been launched into the cause of a blaze at a derelict Preston church.
Fire crews from Preston were called to the derelict former St Theresa's Church on Church Avenue in Fishwick yesterday evening.
Two crews put out a small blaze and an investigation has now been launched to determine the cause.
No-one was injured.
The church has been empty since 2011, and in 2017 planning permission was granted to knock it down, along with the adjoining church hall, and build a care home on the site.
The care home will provide accommodation for adults with a range of complex medical conditions.
