Firefighters called to rug on fire

Firefighters attended a fire in a house in Harmby yesterday.

Firefighters were called to Chapel Lane at about 1.45pm.

The incident was a fire to a rug in front of the fire.

The fire service said the property was heavily smoke logged and crews used a fan to clear the smoke and a small bottle of water to extinguish the fire.

Small tools and a thermal imaging camera were also used.

In a separate incident, a crew was called to an industrial bin on fire in Richmond Road, Hipswell, at about 3.30pm.

The blaze was dealt with using a hose reel jet and a thermal imaging camera.

This was believed to have been started deliberately.
