Volunteers Respond on Frigid Night for Chimney Fire

Members of the Fire Company were dispatched to 57 East Ashland Street at 9:14PM on the evening of January 3, 2014 for a reported chimney fire. First arriving Battalion Chief 19 Paul Kreuter, Deputy Chief Mike Wood, and Battalion Chief 79 Bret Morris reported that embers were seen coming from the chimney. Engine 19 and 79 took interior operations while Ladder 79 crew went to the roof to inspect the chimney. Debris was found burning in the chimney and crews made quick work of extinguishing anything further inside the residence.
