Chimney blaze sparks call-out for Burnham-On-Sea firefighters

A chimney blaze led to a call-out for Burnham-On-Sea firefighters on Thursday evening (March 7th).

Crews were called to West Road in Lympsham at 7.48pm where a resident had raised the alarm.

"Crews had to remove a wood burner to gain access to the hearth then used a thermal imaging camera to check the chimney breast for hot spots," a fire service spokesman told

Chimney rods were also used with chimney gear to extinguish the fire and keep the damage to a minimum.
