Residents of a Derby nursing home had to be evacuated under emergency procedures when a fire broke out. The blaze, described by the fire brigade as severe, is thought to have started in the boiler room of the Alvaston Manor nursing home in Derby. Ambulances rushed to the scene but no injuries were reported. Nursing home manager Susannah King said staff were alerted to the blaze by the fire alarm and the residents were immediately evacuated to an area atthe rear of the building. “We don¹t have any idea how the fire started,” Ms King said. Fire investigators are attempting to establish the cause of the blaze.
