Staff at the Little John Hotel, Hathersage, had to alert emergency services after discovering smoke coming from the cellar.

Firefighters from Bradwell, Chesterfield and Low Edges attended the incident – which occurred on Thursday, September 27 at 10.30am.

Once in attendance, crews had to use breathing apparatus to enter the cellar and quickly discovered a washer-dryer was alight.

Firefighters used one hose-reel jet to extinguish the blaze and left the scene shortly after 11am.
