CHIMNEY fires had to be dealt with in Uffculme and Tiverton on Sunday afternoon.

Crews were called to a property on Warnicombe Lane at 4.05pm on November 13.

On arrival, crews confirmed there was a fire within the chimney by using a thermal imaging camera.

Crews extinguished the fire and left duty of care with the occupiers.

One engine from Cullompton was then sent to Stenhill Cross in Uffculme at 4.43pm to another chimney fire. 

Crews found hot spots in the flue of the chimney and used chimney gear to extinguish.

Duty of care was left with the occupiers.
