Firemens try to manage the blaze on Darwen Moor.

Firemens are dealing with a blaze in the Pennines that is burning throughout 5 km (3 miles) of moorland, teams stated.

The fire started near Bolton Roadway, Darwen, at about 18: 45 BST on Saturday.

Chief fire officer Justin Johnston said it was “more than most likely” the fire was begun by a non reusable barbecue found near where the blaze broke out.

Firefighters are also dealing with another blaze on Longridge Fell, Clitheroe, which started on Sunday afternoon.

Individuals have been encouraged to stay inside, and keep doors and windows shut.

Road closures were in place including Turton Road and access to Darwen Moor from Whitehall Park.

Lancashire Fire teams tackled four other outdoor blazes on Saturday, consisting of in Bacup, Winter Season Hill and near Anglezarke tank.

Mr Johnston stated: “They are rarely [due to] natural causes like broken glass and sunlight … typically it’s negligent usage on something like this, or it’s deliberate.”

A United Utilities helicopter is helping crews tackle the Darwen fire.

Mr Johnston said emergency situation services were “working extremely difficult”, following issues over a possible repeat of a fire that lasted for 42 days at Winter season Hill in summer 2018.

” As soon as the fire’s into that peat under the ground, that’s a fuel source itself – it will burn and burn … it can go underground and it can pop up 20 feet away.

” The ground conditions are so dry at the minute that we really don’t desire anyone up on the moors and having barbecues and camp fires,” he informed BBC Radio Lancashire.
