FIRE crews had to cut away floorboards at a cottage in Halwill after a fire broke out in the chimney on Sunday lunchtime.

A crew from Holsworthy arrived at the scene just before 1pm and requested back up to arrive from Hatherleigh.

Fire fighters confirmed the fire involved a solid fuel stove and smoke was entering the first floor due to the chimney being lined with a steel liner.

Crews got to work cutting away the floor boards, extinguishing the fire using chimney gear, and remained on scene to cool the fire.
