Crews from Modbury and Kingsbridge attended a chimney fire in Woodleigh on Tuesday. 

Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service received a call from a member of the public just after 8pm on Tuesday, 9 March, to report a fire in the chimney of a house in Woodleigh near Loddiswell.

One fire crew from Modbury was immediately mobilised. When they arrived they confirmed that there was a fire in the flue of the chimney and requested the assistance of a second crew from Kingsbridge. 

Crews got to work to extinguish the fire using chimney gear and a thermal imaging camera. Once extinguished and advice given, the incident was handed back to the occupier.
