Denby house fire

A fire that started in an outbuilding spread to the roof space of a house on Church Street in the early hours of Monday morning.

Firefighters from Ripley, Heanor and Belper were called out at 2.30am and wore breathing apparatus to tackle the blaze.

The three-storey semi-detached house was ventilated and the neighbouring house was checked with a thermal imaging camera before the crews left. An investigation into the causes of the fire is due to be carried out today.
