"I still wasn't sure at this point if anyone was inside the burning building, but I couldn't get close enough as flames came too high too fast and the heat got unbearable.

Mr Leighton said the fire service arrived quickly and praised them for their efforts.
A 'stop' call was made at 1.30am on Friday by the fire service.
