Chimney Fire - Main St - February 6th 2008

At 12:52pm the Middlesex Fire Department was dispatched to a reported chimney fire with a heavy smoke condition in the house. By automatic mutual aid agreement, the Rushville Fire Department was called for a full response on the initial dispatch.

Middlesex E16, PT46 and M23 and Car 8-0 were on scene within 1 minute of the time of dispatch. 8-0 arrived on scene to report a heavy smoke condition around the chimney at the roofline of a two story home with a steep roof. 8-0 assumed extension into the roof and called for a full response from Potter.

E16 arrived on scene and hooked a hydrant in front of the house. Officers on scene investigated inside and gained access to the attic.

Firefighters determined that the fire had not yet extended to the roof however there was a high heat and fire condition in the chimney. The mortar joints around the brick chimney had failed allowing smoke into the house.

A crew was placed on the roof and ABC dry chemical powder was dropped down the chimney and then a brush was run from the top.

A crew inside cleaned out the wood stove and chimney cleanouts.

The homeowner was home and noticed the problem and called the fire department early. Damage was confined to the chimney and a few small holes made to check for extension.
