Sleaford firefighters were called out to a chimney fire at a property in Holdingham last night (Monday).

The call came in just after 9pm from an address on Lincoln Road where the crew found soot had caught fire within the cowling of the chimney.

Fire had gone out before they arrived and they established that it had started because of the build-up of soot.
