Fire investigation officer Mike Burroughs said: “With the nights still being quite cold people have naturally been warming up their homes by lighting the traditional home fire, but without proper maintenance a chimney can become dangerous.
"To keep yourself and your family safe from fire you should take care to have your chimney swept regularly.”
