FIRE fighters were called to a pub today (Wednesday, December 2) to attend a chimney fire.

The fire was at Ye Olde Red Horse pub, Vine street, Evesham. Staff called emergency services at 12:40 and one fire crew from Evesham attended. The fire was extinguished using chimney rods and other small tools.

Fire fighters will return to the pub this afternoon to check the chimney again, which is normal practice when dealing with chimney fires.
