An ambulance was called out to the scene of a house fire in Ilkeston last night (August 18).

Two adults and a nine-year-old girl were taken to hospital after the blaze on Skeavington Lane, in Cotmanhay, Ilkeston, at 10.05pm.

The fire involved a television in one of the bedrooms.

When crews from Ilkeston arrived, the fire had already been extinguished and the affected items were moved to the exterior of the property,

The family went to the Queen’s Medical Centre, Nottingham, as a precautionary check due to smoke inhalation.
