    Reporter, BBC Radio Nottingham

    Firefighters were called to this block just after 15:00.

    The fire itself is in one of the top-floor flats in a building that is six storeys high.

    From where I've been standing I've seen smoke billowing out of one of the windows.

    fire

    Firefighters have been trying to bring it under the control.

    In the past half-an-hour the fire has spread to part of the roof area.

    This block was built in 2004 and is part of a series of over 60 apartments on Raleigh Street.

    A couple of dozen residents are being moved out of the area for their own safety.
