An investigation is under way after shipping containers and a heap of tyres were set alight in Great George Street, Preston yesterday (Sunday, December 6).

Nearby shipping containers used for storage had also caught fire, leading the fire service to suspect foul-play.

Three fire engines from Preston and Penwortham attended with firefighters using a foam jet to extinguish the blaze.

Preston fire station tweeted: “The quick professional actions of experienced Preston Fire crews prevented an intense fire spreading to a neighbouring building containing a large quantity of tyres.”

Fire officers reported their suspicions to Lancashire Police and the force has confirmed that an investigation into its cause is under way.
