Firefighters are urging homeowners to ensure their chimneys are swept following an incident last night (Monday, January 25).
Bourne crews were called to High Street, Thurlby, just after 9.30pm following reports of a chimney fire.

A fire service social media post stated: "Ensure you have chimneys with wood burning stoves/open fire swept yearly to prevent a build up of soot."
