Have your say

A BUILD up in a flue caused a chimney to catch fire.

A crew from Rainton Bridge Fire Station were called to Buttermere Avenue in Easington Lane at 3.50pm today after the blaze was spotted.

The officers used a hose reel to send water down the chimney after reaching the top of the building by ladder, with rods from above and below used to put out the fire.

No damage was caused to the house.
