FIREFIGHTERS tackled a chimney fire at a cottage in North Newton last night.

A crew from Bridgwater was sent to Tuckerton Farm just before 8.30pm after a call from the owner.

A fire service spokesman said: “On arrival they confirmed this was involving a wood burning stove and set to work extinguishing it from the hearth using chimney gear.

“The crew confirmed this was a difficult chimney fire and so it took them longer to extinguish it.

“Fire safety advice was given and duty of care was left with the owner.”
