Newport Fire Fighters save a home in South Beach

Chimney Fire
South Beach


At approximately 12:30 overnight on Thursday February 28th, Newport Fire Department was dispatched to a report of a chimney fire spreading into the ceiling at a residence in South Beach. First arriving units observed smoke coming from a chimney and roof of a two-story home. The homeowner was cooling the chimney from the exterior with a garden hose.

Fire crews were able to remove the fire from the fireplace and extinguish the fire after several hours of overhaul. The fire had spread to areas of the wall and multi-layered roof. A large section of the interior chimney rock face was removed to access the fire. Once removed, the interior of the wall showed that heat from the chimney had weakened the wood and made it more susceptible to a fire over time.

The cause of the fire was determined to be fire spread from a faulty chimney flue. Working smoke detectors alerted the residents to the fire and they were able to evacuate safely.
