CREWS have tackled a boiler fire at a property in Cholmondeley.

Firefighters were called out to an address on Sawmill Road at 7.33am today (April 6).

Two fire engines attended the scene – one from Malpas and another from Whitchurch.

Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service said: "Firefighters were called following reports of a fire at an outbuilding of a property on Sawmill Road.

"On arrival crews found that the fire involved a boiler. Firefighters isolated all services to the boiler and used one hose reel jet to extinguish the flames.

"Crews then checked the adjacent properties and roof space for any signs of heat and fire.

"The flue liner of the boiler was removed as a precaution and crews used a thermal imaging camera to check that the boiler was at a stable temperature.

"Crews were in attendance for around one hour."
