Firefighters tackle blaze at Chippenham stables

Four fire crews tackled a house fire near Chippenham on Saturday night.

Two crews from Chippenham were called to Lanhill Stables at 7.18pm to deal with a blaze in the tiled roof of a single storey home.

Animals at the site were moved to safety by the owners and two further crews - from Corsham and Calne – were mobilised to assist with firefighting and salvage, supported by the aerial appliance from Swindon and a water carrier from Royal Wootton Bassett.

It is believed that the fire started in the flue liner of a chimney.
