Specialist equipment used to tackle two-hour chimney blaze

Daniel Darlington

Specialist equipment was used to tackle a chimney fire at a property in Cliveden Mead near Boulters Lock last night.

Firefighters from Maidenhead Station spent a couple of hours extinguishing the blaze between 10pm and midnight.

Specialist chimney clearing kit, a thermal imaging camera and a ladder was used to inspect the chimney from above.

The fire at the residential property was difficult to put out because the chimney had a number of bends.
