A three-year-old girl is being treated in hospital after she was rescued from a fire in West Lancashire.

The girl was carried from a burning flat by firefighters called to the flat in Stanley Court, Burscough, Ormskirk, just after 2300 BST on Saturday.

A man was also led to safety from the property.

A Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said the fire broke out on the first and second floor of the maisonette.

Four neighbouring properties were slightly damaged by the blaze.
