Specialist chimney equipment and a thermal imaging camera were used.

Yesterday (Monday April 1) firefighters were called to a home in Woodfield Road, Rudgwick, around lunchtime and a house in Vale Drive, Horsham, a couple of hours later.

At the latter incident a triple extension ladder and a roof ladder were used.
