A fire that began from flue accessories has led to significant damage at a fish and chip shop in Torquay.
The incident meant that the local seafront area had to be closed off to provide emergency services with sufficient space to combat the flames, according to the Herald Express.
Chip shop owner Norma Hannah told the newspaper: "I would like to thank all the fire crews for their quick response because it could have been a lot more serious than it was. At least no one was hurt."
Meanwhile, the Maidenhead Advertiser recently reported that a home in Maidenhead was damaged by a chimney blaze.
A fire team attended the property in Sutton Close at around 19:00 GMT on February 24th, after residents witnessed sparks being released from their chimney and heard obscure "roaring" sounds from the structure.
