“2 Fire Appliances from Coleraine Fire Station were deployed to the scene following a report of a chimney fire in the area. Firefighters using a stirrup pump, thermal imaging cameras, breathing apparatus and a gas monitor dealt with the incident. One woman and three children were taken to a nearby hospital due to a high level of carbon monoxide in an adjacent property as a precaution.
