COTSWOLD firefighters spent an hour tackling a chimney fire in a village near Blockley.
Gloucestershire Fire & Rescue Service was called just before 7pm on Saturday to Draycott.
A crew from Chipping Campden used chimney rods to clear the chimney and a thermal image camera to ensure no further hot spots remained.
Due to increased popularity of solid fuel heating, the fire service attends a significant number of chimney fires every year.
