It’s that time of year when you want to make sure you don’t burn down your home because you failed to know what’s up your chimney. A chimney sweep is a lot cheaper than a new house.
Occupants of the house are evacuating.
Substantial smoke. Newport Fire calling for more units to respond.
Firefighters have contained and extinguished the flue fire. But there is a second source of smoke they’re trying to track down.
Fire out. Newport Fire returning to quarters.
