February 24, 2008

Company 22 was dispatched to 643 Main Street for a reported chimney fire. Engine 22 responded with a crew of six, and Truck 22 responded with a crew of six. One EMS unit from Medic 6 also responded. Engine 22 arrived on scene and took the A/D corner, finding a two story wood frame duplex with heavy black smoke pouring from a chimney in the center of the roof. Truck 22 arrived on side A, and sent a team to the roof, while the engine crew packed up and sent a crew to the basement. CO readings in the basement were high. The crew shut down the oil burner, pulled the pipe from the wall, and capped the opening - after which the truck crew ran chains to clean the chimney. They found an obstruction in the chimney at a level in the vicinity of the first floor ceiling. The occupants contacted the landlord, who contacted a furnace repairman, who arrived on the scene to repair the problem. After venting the first and second floors with negative pressure, the building was returned to the occupants and the furnace repairman.
