CHIMNEY FIRE ON KRESGE LANE

Monday, February 2, 2015   Companies were dispatched to a reported chimney fire with flames shooting out the chimney. The house was located at the top of a 1000' long narrow driveway that could not be accessed by the ladder or engine companies. Pick up trucks from 16 and 18 were used to get personnel to the scene. Upon arrival, chief 17 found an active chimney fire in a wood burning stove pipe. Crews laddered the building using the homeowners ladder and removed the chimney cap. The homeowner used a dry powder extinguisher on the fire before companies arrived. The pipe was disassembled, and more dry powder was shot up the chimney extinguishing the fire. Crews used the TIC to check for extension into the roof area. Engine 17 was ordered to remain on Route 940 so that they could establish a water supply if needed.
