An investigation into the cause of a fire at a building on Lows Lane in Stanton-by-Dale has concluded that the fire was started deliberately.

Firefighters were called to attend the fire in the disused building at 4:20pm on Tuesday 12th April.  At the height of the fire, crews from Ilkeston, Long Eaton, Ashbourne and Nottinghamshire’s Highfields, London Road and Stapleford attended the fire, supported by an aerial ladder platform, command unit and water carrier. 

The incident was scaled down to two fire engines at around 11:00pm on the same day, with the final crews leaving the scene just after 6:00am on Wednesday morning (13th). Firefighters from Ilkeston returned over the course of Wednesday morning to carry out a further inspection and check for any hot spots. 

Lows Lane was closed during the incident but was subsequently reopened.
