These were the dramatic scenes as two Chorley businesses were demolished.
A fire raged through the Amalfi restaurant and Cash Converters on Cleveland Road in the early hours of this morning and demolition crews have now stepped in to make the scene safe.
It is expected to take around three hours to partially demolish the first floor of the properties and Cleveland Road and High Street will be closed all day.
