Firefighters spent an hour battling a bedroom blaze.
Two engines from Staveley were called to the fire at a house on Rowan Road, Eckington, at about 6.15pm last night.
One of the bedrooms was “well alight”, firefighters said.
They battled the flames and also ventilated the property because it had become smoke-logged.
Nobody was injured.
It is not clear how the fire started.
Crews left the scene at about 7.15pm.
