Lincolnshire Fire & Rescue in chimney fire warning

Lincolnshire Fire & Rescue has urged the public to clean their chimney regularly after firefighters were called out to four chimney fires in one night.

On Sunday evening fire crews were scrambled to reports of chimney fires on several occasions, one of which also spread to the fire surround.

“Please remember to get your chimney swept regularly to lower your risk of a fire in the home,” said a spokesperson for emergency service.
