Waldport: Chimney fire at 140 NW John – Seal Rock, Central Coast and Yachats Fire Departments on scene
Report of a chimney fire at 140 NW John Street. Central Coast Fire-Rescue on scene. The wind is blowing hard and it’s raining pretty hard.
Bigger fire than originally thought. Seal Rock and Yachats Fire-Rescue are now responding to the fire. Now may be more than just a fire in the chimney.
Firefighters are now inside the home trying to trace down the source of the smoke that continues to come out of the chimney despite the fact the fireplace fire is out.
The fire burning inside the chimney did not extend through the chimney to the attic area. Firefighters are calling it good and are returning to their stations. Of course the occupants of the house are expected to call 9-1-1 at the first hint of a smell of new smoke.
