Fire in Lenton: Emergency services called to Kimbo blaze

Students line the streets as fire engines called to blaze supposedly caused by a candle

Firemen helpfully commented: “There has been a fire.”

Neighbours said that a candle was the cause of the fire, although that remains to be confirmed.

Many students left their homes to watch the events unfold, and fire-fighters have started handing safety leaflets out.

UPDATE: Firemen and neighbours have both confirmed that books caught on fire. The cordon was lifted at 10:30pm.
