Firefighters were called out to tackle a blaze on High Street in Alfreton on Saturday evening.

The fire, which happened shortly before 5pm, was initially thought to have been contained in a wheelie bin but on further investigation the crew found that it had spread to the flat above a nearby shop.

They used two breathing apparatus and one hose reel jet to extinguish the fire and the incident was declared closed shortly after.
