Sparks from flue accessories led to a fire in West Somerset, where more than ten crews were called to assist homeowners.
Fire teams from Wilton, Minehead, Porlock, Taunton, Bridgewater and many other locations attended the blaze, which had to be extinguished using two foam jets as well as two main jets, according to ThisIsTheWestCountry.co.uk.
A fire spokesman told the website: "The fire was caused by sparks from the chimney which caught the thatch. The property has suffered severe fire damage and one end was deemed structurally unstable."
Meanwhile, the Manchester Evening News has reported that a farmhouse in Manchester caught fire last week, after flames burnt through its wood stove pipe.
The blaze occurred in the Lower Little Bank farm in Carbrook farmhouse's fireplace and then spread to the floor before homeowners could even notice the damage.
Fire officials spent a duration of four hours extinguishing the flames and checking for any extra hotspots.
