Firefighters rush to tackle three Christmas house fires



Firefighters have had a busy Christmas after being called in to torch three different homes.

The drama started at Horncastle at 6:53 p.m. on Christmas Eve when two teams were rushed to a house fire.

Crews from Horncastle and Woodhall Spa extinguished the flames using fireplaces, a bucket of water and removing the wooden lintel.

Officials found that a wood stove had been overloaded.

Later that evening, crews were called in to a house fire just outside Lincoln.

Both Lincoln South and Lincoln North crews were deployed to the scene at 10:34 p.m.

The flames were extinguished using two breathing apparatuses and a hose reel.

However, one room was damaged by fire and the rest of the property was damaged by smoke.

An overloaded electrical outlet was discovered to be the cause.

But, there was no respite on Christmas Day, as firefighters were also busy on the job during a house fire in Wragby.

Crews from Horncastle, Lincoln South, Lincoln North and Market Rasen were called into action after a house on Bardney Road caught fire at 7:56 a.m.

Details on a cause or how the fire was extinguished have yet to be released.

BBC Radio Lincolnshire reported that no one was injured.
