FIREFIGHTERS had to clear a smoke-filled home after a fire was lit under a blocked chimney.

A crew was called from Cosham fire station to Walker Road, Tipner, at 5pm on Saturday, but the fire was already out.

The chimney had become blocked since it was used last winter.

A fan was used to remove the smoke.
