Chatsworth tree fire

Have your say

Firefighters from Matlock were called into action after a 40 foot Cedar tree set on fire.

The incident occurred at 4.30pm on Thursday, April 4, on the Chatsworth Estate, just off the B6012 road.

Firefighters used one hose-reel jet to tackle the blaze – which crews described as “well alight” upon arrival – but left the incident in the hands of Chatsworth Estate staff when it was under control.
