Crews from Wisbech and March were called to a roof fire in High Road after roof felting work overheated the timbers inside the roof and caused a smouldering fire.
Firefighters cut into the timbers to prevent the fire from developing and returned to their stations buy 4.49pm.
Watch Commander Phil Pilbeam, from Wisbech Fire Station, said: “Any tradespeople, or homeowners undertaking jobs such as roof felting, should be aware of the potential for timbers to heat up and catch alight.”
