A suspected cannabis grow has been discovered at a property in Osmaston following reports of a fire.
We were called just before 12.10am this morning (Monday 13 February) by Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service to Grosvenor Street.
Fire crews tackled the blaze at the house, and after the flames had been extinguished a number of plants were found being cultivated at the property.
No one was found to be at the address, and no one has reported suffering any injuries, but substantial damage has been caused to the house.
At this time, it is believed the fire was caused by an electrical fault.
An investigation is being carried out by the Sinfin and Osmaston Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team and we would like to hear from anyone who may have any information or noticed any suspicious activity in the area over the last few days.
