Two people have died in a flat fire in Langley Mill

Published on Thursday 5 December 2019

Two people have tragically died in a flat fire in Langley Mill.


At 11.45am yesterday (Tuesday 3 December), we were called to a flat in Andrews Drive by a member of the public who thought it looked like there had been a fire at the property.

We contacted the fire and rescue service and asked firefighters to attend.

Upon entry, police officers discovered that there had been a fire and sadly, we found the bodies of a man and a woman inside.

Group Manager Lee Smith said: “This is a tragic accident that has sadly led to the death of two people and our thoughts and sympathy go to the family and friends of the deceased at this distressing time.

“The fire service responded to the incident following a police request to attend as they had discovered that there had been a fire in the living room and smoke damage throughout the rest of the property.”

The fire was already out when the police entered the property.

A joint police and fire investigation has concluded that the most probable cause of the fire was accidental due to smoking materials. 

The man and woman have yet to be formally identified but we have made their families aware. Officers are now preparing a file for the coroner.

On Thursday 5 December and Friday 6 December, firefighters and Community Safety Officers will be in the local area offering fire safety advice and reassurance to residents. Crews will be visiting Andrews Drive, Neal Court and Holmes Close.
