Fire hits former care home in Bulwell

HOUSEHOLDERS were warned to stay indoors and to keep their windows and door shut after a blaze broke out at a former care home on Coventry Road at Bulwell.

Firefighters from Central, Arnold, Stockhill and Highfields fire stations were mobilised to the incident, along with the Environmental Protection Unit and Command Support Unit.

Due to the nature of the fire, Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service last night advised anyone in the vicinity of the junction of Seller’s Wood Drive and Coventry Road to stay indoors and keep their windows and doors closed.
