A fire that tore through a garage in west Cumbria was not suspicious.
It took 25 firefighters to put out the blaze in a large building at the P&R Benn Filling Station in Cockermouth just after 3.30pm on Sunday.
A police spokesman told the News & Star that they had investigated the incident but had not found anything suspicious about the fire.
The crews travelled from Cockermouth, Aspatria, Maryport, Keswick and Frizington to deal with the blaze.
It caused large holes clearly visible in the 30m by 40m building at the front of the Station Road site, which is just yards from the town’s fire station.
The fire also gave off toxic fumes and firefighters tackling it had to wear breathing apparatus.
Station Road was closed until 6pm while the blaze was put out.
