House fire – Stonely - Huntingdonshire

At 8pm on Monday (24) crews were called to a fire on Pertenhall Road in Stonely.

Crews from St Neots, Huntingdon and Sawtry, along with crews from Bedford in Bedfordshire, attended the incident.

Firefighters arrived to find a fire in the wall spaces of the property that had spread from the chimney flue pipe. Wearing breathing apparatus they extinguished the fire using hose reels and returned to their stations by 12.25am.

The cause of the fire was accidental.

A fire service spokesman said: “Please ensure that you get your chimney swept and brickwork inspected at least once a year, preferably before lighting it. This will help to prevent a fire spreading from the chimney flue to other parts of the property.”
