Burnham-On-Sea firefighters tackled a chimney blaze on Thursday evening (March 16th).

Crews were called to West Close in the village of Mark shortly before 8pm to reports of a chimney fire at a house there.

"One fire engine from Burnham-On-Sea was mobilised to reports of a chimney fire at a property on West Close in Mark," a spokesman told

"On arrival crews confirmed there was a fire in the upper section of the chimney and got to work extinguishing the fire using chimney rods and a hose reel jet through the inspection plate."
