Firefighters were called to extinguish a large fire in Radlett yesterday evening.
At about 9pm, the Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue Service were dealing with a blaze on Watford Road.
The fire was on the first floor and roof of a derelict building and crews from Watford, Garston, St Albans and Stevenage had to use a platform to get above the flames.
No-one was hurt because the building was empty.
Crew members advised nearby residents on Twitter to keep their windows closed, and the fire was extinguished around 11pm.
