an investigation began this morning into the cause of a fire which severely damaged a flat above a restaurant in Albert Road, Colne, last night.

Firefighters were called to Da Giorgos at 11-22 p.m. to find the third floor flat well alight. They used eight sets of breathing apparatus, a hose reel and a thermal imaging camera to deal with the blaze.

The ground and first floor sections of the restaurant suffered light smoke and heat damage.
