Soot build-up causes chimney fire in Quadring

Have your say

Firemen using ladders, a hose reel and specialist equipment have dealt with a chimney blaze at a house in Quadring.

It broke out at a house in Town Drove where soot had built up in a chimney, causing the fire which was reported just before 6.30pm.

A fire crew from Donington put out the blaze which came less than a month after a countywide warning for people to clean their chimneys after a spate of incidents during March.
