Fire crews called to smoking boiler room

Firefighters were called out today to a suspected fire in a boiler room.

Crews from Reeth and Leyburn attended a boiler room where a water pressurising system began smoking at Walburn, near Bellerby, at about 7am this morning.

The crews investigated and found that a bearing on the system had overheated, but it had not caused damage to anything else.

The crews made the area safe before leaving with site with the owners.
