Chimney fire – Brandon Bank - East Cambs

At 8.42pm on Thursday (2) a crew from Littleport was called to a fire in Brandon Bank. 

Firefighters arrived to find a fire involving a chimney in a home and extinguished it. They returned to their station by 11.30pm. 

The cause of the fire was accidental.  

A fire service spokesman said: “Please ensure that you get your chimney swept and brick work inspected regularly, at least once a year. The debris buildup in the flue can be set alight when heating the home, which could cause a significant fire. Regular chimney maintenance will help prevent this from happening. 

“As the cold weather begins to arrive, it is important to get your chimney swept before lighting it for the first time.”
