FIRDFIGHTERS were called out to an evening incident at a property near Chester.

One fire crew attended the scene in Church Bank at about 8.30pm yesterday (Monday, January 22).

A spokesperson for Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service said: Firefighters used a short extension ladder and a thermal imaging camera to take temperature readings of the entire chimney breast to gauge the spread of the fire.

"Crews then used water to steam the chimney and chimney rods to bring the small fire under control.

"Final temperature checks were carried out before leaving the incident."
