Crews from three fire stations have been tackling what has been described as a "serious house fire" in a Nottinghamshire village. Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue confirmed at around 5.30pm on Saturday (July 6) that it was attending the fire in the Gedling village of Burton Joyce.

Councillor Mike Adams, the county councillor for the area, suggested that the incident affected Bridle Road. Councillor Adams posted: "Bridle Road - no access currently. Two fire engines in attendance to a fire."

No exact location for the incident has yet been confirmed. One eyewitness in the area reported seeing multiple emergency service vehicles travelling down Nottingham Road, the main route through Burton Joyce, around the time of the fire.

The eyewitness reported seeing at least two fire engines, three ambulances and around seven police cars. Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue said crews from fire stations in Stockhill, Arnold and Carlton were attending the incident and that a joint investigation into it would begin with Nottinghamshire Police.

A Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue spokesperson was unable to confirm any further details on Sunday morning (July 7), saying that Nottinghamshire Police would provide all further updates as the incident has been fully handed over to the force. We will bring you further details on this story as we get them later today.
