Dedicated St John Ambulance volunteers rushed to the scene of a blaze in Lancashire in the early hours of this morning and set up a rest centre for anxious residents evacuated from their homes.

After receiving a call out for a fire at a martial arts gymnasium in Cross Street, Fleetwood at 05.25am this morning, St John Ambulance representatives got to the scene in 20 minutes and set about reassuring concerned residents.

Robin Gonard, Assistant County Commissioner Lancashire said: “The early call out certainly demonstrated that our emergency plan is very well rehearsed and this is clear from the very short response time.
