A chimney fire on Christmas Eve in Brigg might not have been good news for Santa ahead of his annual visit to the town.
Thankfully, it appears to have been of a minor nature and was dealt with by fire-fighters.
Humberside Fire and Rescue Service  attended the Britannia Inn, on Wrawby Street, not long after 6pm.
Fire-fighters used a  10.5-metre ladder, a roof ladder, chimney rods, a stirrup pump and a hose reel.
The pub later posted on Facebook that it was still open despite the unexpected incident.
A picture of fire-fighters at the scene accompanied the new media post.
