Crews tackle chimney fire in Claverham

High Street, Claverham

Chimney fireFirefighters have dealt with a chimney fire in the North Somerset village of Yatton.

When crews arrived they found the chimney well alight, so using roads, stirrups, a high pressure hose reel and a roof ladder they extinguished the fire. A thermal imaging camera was used to check for hotpots once the fire was out.

Avon Fire & Rescue Service would like to remind people to ensure they have their chimneys swept regularly as a build up of soot and debris can catch fire.
