Four crews tackled a chimney fire at a house in Shipham yesterday (Monday).
Firefighters from Cheddar, Winscombe, Weston-super-Mare and Wells were called to The Square just before 3pm after a number of people rang to report smoke billowing from the roof of a house.
Crews from Avon Fire and Rescue Service evacuated one elderly lady from the ground floor of the property – she was not inured and did not require further medical treatment.
The chimney fire was caused by a log burner on the ground floor of the two-storey building.
