Rail fire

Firefighters from Alfreton tackled a fire beside a railway line in Riddings on Sunday.

The alarm was raised at around 5.30pm on the railway embankment off Slack Lane where 20 metres of undergrowth was alight. One hose reel jet was used to extinguish the fire.

Just before 1am on the same day, Alfreton crews were called to a large skip fire on Gloves Lane in Blackwell.
