Firefighters tackled a chimney fire in Eastrea yesterday.

A crew from Whittlesey was called to a chimney fire, which was caused accidently, in Coates Road at 4.50pm.

A fire service spokesman said: “Please ensure that you get your chimney swept and the brickwork inspected at least once a year. This will help to prevent a chimney fire.”
