Fire crews were called to three chimney fires.

It appears the chilly termperatures have led to people lighting fires indoors again to keep warm.

At just before 6pm last night a crew from Hadleigh attended a chimney alight at Crowcroft Road, Nedging Tye. The fire was out by just before 7pm.

Then at 7.45pm, the crew at Saxmundham attended a property in Park Avenue, Saxmundham, where a woodburner flue was well alight.The situation was under control by 8.18pm and the firefighters left the scene by 8.30pm.

The third incident happend at Stradbroke Road, Brundish, at 10.13pm, where a woodburner was also found alight.

The crew used chimney rods to help extinguish the fire and the incident was under control by 10.39pm.
