Firefighters at scene of Two Dales mill fire all night

Fire crews have been in attendance all night at a fire in an historic mill.

Two crews from Matlock, one from Wirksworth and one from Bakewell, were called to the east block of Johnsons Mill, in Ladygrove Road, Two Dales, at 9.33pm last night. An aerial ladder platform from Chesterfield was also in attendance.

The fire had started on the ground floor of the three storey stone building, which measures approximately 40 metres by 60 metres.

Firefighters used main jets, breathing apparatus and hose reel jets to tackle the blaze.

One member of the public was treated for burns.

A crew stayed at the scene of the fire all night damping it down.

Fire officers will be checking the scene again today to ensure the blaze it fully extinguished.
