A wood burning stove caused a fire in a chimney at a property in Bromsgrove.

Firefighters were called when residents noticed the walls in their property in Rigby Lane had become hot at around 5.30pm yesterday (Tuesday).

Two crews of firefighters from Bromsgrove attended and found a fire in the chimney.

Hereford and Worcester fire control tweeted that it was "extinguished using chimney rods, water and working at height gear."
