Chimney fire

High Street, Thornborough

One appliance and crew from Buckingham attended.

A fire had broken out within a large chimney.

The firefighters used:

  • Chimney gear
  • A thermal imaging camera
  • A stirrup pump

Open fire and log burners can generate a cosy atmosphere as the nights draw in - but if you've given your fireplace the summer off and are starting to think about lighting up, please make sure you get your chimney and flue checked out first!
