A spokesman from Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service said: "The caller believed the fire may involve the log burner due to a smell from the chimney and walls being hot.

"When firefighters arrived they investigated the heat source and gained access to the chimney.

"They extinguished the fire using a nimbus nozzle and were in attendance approximately two hours and fifteen minutes."

No casualties were reported.
