Small fire involving logs next to woodburner

Olney Road, Weston Underwood

One appliance and crew from Newport Pagnell and one from Broughton attended.

Logs stored next to a woodburner in a ground floor living room had caught light, causing smoke logging to the house.

The firefighters used:

  • Two sets of breathing apparatus
  • One hose reel jet
  • A thermal imaging camera
  • Small gear

If you use a woodburner, open fire or kitchen range, please consider our safety advice.

Heat from the fire can transfer to combustibles if stored or left too close, so always leave a good space between, as heat could transfer through direct contact and cause a fire.
