An automatic misting system put out a fire in a flat in Buxton before firefighters arrived.

Crews from Buxton, Whaley Bridge and Longnor were called to the property on Spencer Road in Buxton, at around 2.40pm on Wednesday, January 20.

But by the time they arrived, an automatic misting system, which was installed in the building, had activated and put out the fire.

The service left the scene at 2.40pm.
