Firefighters were called out to The Volunteer Inn, Ottery St Mary, following reports of a chimney blaze.

Crew members arrived at the pub in Broad Street shortly after 2.37pm today (Monday).

A Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews found a fire in the hearth of the chimney. Small tools and chimney gear were used to extinguish the fire.

“It did not spread outside the chimney breast itself.”

Michael Down, the owner of The Volunteer Inn, said: “It was a minor chimney fire. It was put out before the fire brigade got here.”
