We have attended 18 chimney fires since Christmas Eve.
Don't let yours be next.
We all like sitting by an open fire at this time of year BUT there are some simple precautions you should take:
- Make sure your chimney is swept by a professional Chimney Sweep regularly.
- Make sure your chimney is structurally sound if in doubt contact a reputable builder.
- If you are using wood. Make sure it is well seasoned and dry.Â
- If you do think you've got a chimney fire call 999 and get out and stay out of the house.Â
