Chimney fire - Thorney - Peterborough

Crews from Dogsthorpe and Stanground were called to a chimney fire at a home in Abbey Place.

Firefighters used a Multistar appliance to reach the chimney via ladder and used a hose reel to extinguish the fire before returning to their station by 10.20pm.

Crews returned to reinspect the chimney later that evening.

A spokesperson for Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service said: “Please ensure that you get your chimney swept and brickwork inspected at least once a year. This will help to prevent a chimney fire.”
