Severe fire in terraced

FIREFIGHTERS from four stations tackled a severe fire in an Ilkeston house in the early hours of Wednesday,

A crew of about 20 firefighters from Ilkeston, Heanor, Long Eaton and Derby Kingsway stations spent more than 90 minutes battling the blaze in the first floor of a mid-terraced house in Eyre’s Gardens.

The fire broke out in the first floor at about 4am and spread to the roof space, a fire service spokesman said.

It is thought no one was injured in the blaze, which was out by 5.35am.

An investigation was taking place into what caused the fire as the Advertiser went to press.
