The damage happened in Dunkirk Lane in Leyland and left many onlookers wondering the road has melted as Preston basks in super-high temperatures.
However, Lancashire County Council insist that the damage was instead caused because there is nothing underneath the road.
They also note that the likely cause is a problem with water utilities or drainage washing away the earth beneath the road.
