Multiple emergency vehicles called to reports of smoke in Derby flat

Multiple emergency service vehicles were seen attending a block of flats in a Derby suburb after reports of smoke coming through a window.

Three Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service vehicles and at least two Derbyshire police units, as well as an ambulance, attended the scene in Quarn Way, Darley, after the fire service was called at 5:38pm on Tuesday, February 8.

They were called after smoke was seen coming from a kitchen window on the second floor of the Derby Homes property, which turned out to be caused by cooking fumes.

A DFRS spokesperson said that units from Kingsway, Nottingham Road, Ascot Drive and a mobile officer all attended the scene, and said that there was a “noticeable” presence due to the incident being reported in a block of flats, prompting concerns for residents’ safety.

However, the fire units were stood down at around 6:15pm after the property was declared safe and incident deemed a false alarm.
