Firefighters were called to a chimney fire in Brent Knoll last night (Wednesday).
One fire engine from Burnham attended the incident in Bristol Road at 9.30pm.
On arrival, crews found the chimney was alight and they believed it had broken through the chimney breast and into the property.
A second fire engine was called out to help with the blaze.
The fire had breached the chimney breast in the upstairs bedroom of the property.
Crews from Avon Fire and Rescue Service used tools to cut away boarding and panelling to expose the damaged property and to ensure the fire was out.
The blaze was extinguished using one hose reel jet, a safety jet, masks, two thermal imaging cameras and a positive pressure ventilation fan was used to clear the home of smoke.
