City centre blaze drama in Preston

Preston firefighters were called to a city centre fire after a worrying 999 call suggested a person was still inside the building, say fire services.

Three pumps were sent to the incident which happened at around 6.30pm in a derelict building on Cannon Street.

Crews used breathing apparatus to thoroughly check the building to ensure that nobody was inside.

The cause of the fire is unknown and nobody was injured during the incident.
