Crews Tackle Chimney Fire In Preston

Dorset Fire And Rescue Engine 2

8:05am 29th May 2013

The colder than normal weather may have caught out the occupants of a thatched property in Preston following a chimney fire at their home.

Fire crews from Weymouth attended the blaze yesterday in Sutton Road.

Dorset Fire and Rescue are reminding us to sweep chimneys if we're thinking of using them so they're clear before use, as many people are lighting fires to warm homes when they'd previously thought it wouldn't be needed again till the autumn.
