Fire at Somercotes business

A large ducting which caught fire at Kal Tire in Somercotes had to be put out by fire crews yesterday (Thursday, May 9).

Alfreton firefighters were called to the Bluebell Close business shortly after 2pm and used water hoses to dampen the flames.

A large extendable ladder had to be used to gain access to the ducting and a nearby silo to put the fire out, with the crew members leaving at 4pm.

No one was hurt in the incident and the business has resumed trading.
