Fire crews were called to a house fire in a Dales village last night (Monday, June 2).
Two crews from Ashbourne attended The Hillocks Cottage, in Main Street, Kniveton, at 10.50pm.
There was a fire in the cellar and it was heavily smoke-logged.
They used two breathing apparatus and one hose reel jet to extinguish the blaze.
Firefighters gained access to the cellar where they found a washing machine which was involved in the fire.
They isolated it from the main supply and ventilated the property.
They left at around midnight.
