Fatal Fire - Hadfield, Glossop




At 07.33 hours, today, Sunday 7 April 2019, Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service received a call from North West Fire Control, to attend a fire in a ground floor flat on Green Lane, Hadfield, Glossop.

A 999 call had been received reporting a sounding smoke alarm and smoke issuing from the property.

Two fire crews, one from Glossop and one from Ashton in Greater Manchester attended the fire.  A third crew was mobilised from Hyde in Greater Manchester, but were stood down before their arrival.

Firefighters using breathing apparatus entered the property.  The body of what is believed to be a 34 year old man was discovered at the scene. His family have been made aware, but formal identification has not yet taken place.  Our thoughts and sympathy go to the family and friends of the deceased at this distressing time.

A joint police and fire investigation into the cause of the fire is ongoing.
