FIREFIGHTERS from the Staffordshire Moorlands helped to tackle a severe blaze just over the border in Derbyshire last night (July 8).
Crews from Leek and Longnor were despatched to an industrial site at Brierlow Bar, near Buxton, where a five-storey building was well alight.
They joined four crews from Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service in tackling the blaze, which took around three hours to get under control at its height.
