A retained crew from Freshwater Fire Station were mobilised to reports of a chimney fire at a property on The Crundles.
Thanks to the use of a stirrup pump and plenty of elbow grease, the fire was extinguished.
The incident is a timely reminder to remember to have your chimney swept regularly.
Most chimney fires are preventable. Regular inspection and cleaning of chimney flues will help prevent fires within your chimney. For more information visit https://www.hantsfire.gov.uk/keeping-safe/loveyourhome/firehazards/chimney/.
