A warning has been issued after a chimney fire at Mile End Farm in Prickwillow.

One crew from Littleport was called to the scene at 8.18pm yesterday to find a chimney on fire in the kitchen of a house.

They extinguished the fire using a hose reel and returned to their station by 9.50pm.

A Cambridgeshire Fire & Rescue Service spokesman said: “Please ensure that you get your chimney swept and brickwork inspected at least once a year.

“This will help to prevent a chimney fire.”
