Chimney fire

A fire crew from Lerwick was called to a chimney fire at a home in Tresta this afternoon.

Firefighters received the call at about 13.15pm where fire had spread from a Rayburn into a cupboard.

The fire in the cupboard was out on arrival, however firefighters used chimney rods and a stirrup pump to extinguish the remaining flames.

Nobody was injured and the crew left at 2.45pm.
