FIRE crews searched a house in Burnley after a blaze ripped through the living room while people were feared to be inside.

They were called to the house in Hunslet Street at around 5.50pm on Wednesday and were told people could be stuck inside the property.

Steve Harrison, watch manager at Burnley Fire Station, said: “On arrival at this incident, fire crews were met with a developing fire in the front lounge, with smoke and flames clearly seen through the ground floor window and front door.

“Four fire fighters wearing breathing apparatus entered the property to fight the fire and search for the occupants who were thought to be inside.

“The fire was rapidly extinguished, using a water jet, and the house was thoroughly searched. Fortunately no-one was found to be inside.

“The front room of the house was severely damaged by the fire, and the remainder suffered serious smoke and heat damage.”

The blaze is thought to be suspicious and a joint investigation between the fire service and police has been launched.

Open Question to all firemen :

When you draw your monthly wage, do you feel like you've stolen it. :-)

Do you ever give up being the Idiot you are. These guys put their lives at risk for clowns like you. They deserve all the money they earn, good luck to them in their fight for their pension rights. Hope you never have to call them out, what would you have to say then. you sound like a twisted old scrounger who needs a life.

Question to you, when you claim that terminally Ill people are lazy weak scroungers (you did this on an article about charity recently) does it Pr1ck you're conscience and make you realise what a disgusting human being you are?

2 for 5p ladies and gentlemen, the man who has discovered a new low, the man who claims that people who are going to die because of tragic illnesses and leave behind loving families are actually weak, lazy scroungers. HE ACTUALLY SAID THAT on a recent story about charities, please read it for yourself.
If you are offended by his comments, which to be honest is every story he comments on, I urge you to report his disgusting bile filled comments to the site administrators.

Ladies and gentleman .... It appears Seagull and 5 pence are one and the same. Take a look through their posts ... How closely they post within minutes of each other. Very old trick but totally noticeable to anyone who knows what to look for. Most likely a bored PCSO or, even, a BWDC worker abusing their council laptops. Very sad. Lives you must lead. Grow up. Its hardly mature is it?

The trouble is sniper he keeps crawling back out.
He has a particular problem with you boys in the fire and rescue service for sone reason.
Maybe he's failed the application or his wife left him for a fireman, who knows but either way he's a bell wipe of epic proportions.
You boys do a bang up job by the way.
