Report of a chimney fire at a residence at 194 NE Crabapple Drive in Yachats. The flames are no longer coming out of the chimney, but sparks are still flying out.
Firemen pulled up to find sparks still coming out of the chimney. The fire was extinguished.
Firefighters always say to have your chimney inspected and/or cleaned at least once a year. They say even if you don’t burn that much wood over the course of a year, it should still be done because no two chimneys are alike. Some hang onto unburned creosote more than others. Once a year inspections dramatically reduce the chance of a chimney fire which can end tragically.
