Firefighters spent over an hour at the scene of a house fire in Horsley on Sunday evening.

Crews from Belper and Ripley tackled the blaze in the kitchen roof space of a detached bungalow on Horsley Road, after the alarm had been raised at around 10.30pm.

Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used a single water hose to extinguish the fire.

Earlier in the evening, a fire crew attended Fearn Avenue in Ripley just after 9pm to extinguish a sofa which was “well alight” in the open.
