fire crews tackle chimney fire at Highbridge home
fire crews were called to tackle a chimney blaze in Highbridge
on Tuesday (February 1st).
Two fire engines were called to a property on the A38 at 1.08pm
after a resident raised the alarm.
Fire spokeswoman Suzie Izzard told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "Crews
were called to a chimney fire, which caused smoke and fire damage
in the roof space."
"The fire was extinguished from the hearth by fire crews
who used breathing apparatus due to the smoke."
The incident was not fully brought under control until 2.17pm,
when the crews returned to their station.
