TWO fire crews were called out to an incident at a property in Chester in the early hours of this morning.

Firefighters attended the scene in Meynell Place, Blacon, at about 12.20am today (Saturday, March 23). 

A spokesperson for Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service said: "Firefighters were called to reports of a fire involving a shed next to a property.

"On arrival they found a metal shed well alight.

"Four firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used two hose reels to put the fire out before moving the shed to check the structure of the main property.

"A thermal imaging camera was then used to check for any hotspots on the shed and ensure the fire was fully extinguished, after which the incident was handed over to the occupier."
