SOOT and dirt caused a chimney to catch fire.

One fire crew from Cosham was called to Lonsdale Avenue, Cosham, at 2.40pm yesterday.

The call came in as a small fire in a house.

Firefighters tackled the blaze from the top of the house and were there for two hours.

They gave the occupants safety advice on their chimney.
