Lincoln City Police say that cedar shingles are flaming on the back side of the dwelling.

9:36am
More firefighters are being called to the scene. Depoe Bay Fire unit is coming in to help.

9:39am
Quick action by North Lincoln firefighters has limited the fire to the outside of the house on the roof. They cancelled back-up help from Depoe Bay and cancelled the ambulance stand-by.

This homeowner was very lucky.

Clean chimneys once a year. Built up creosote inside them can create cracks in the chimney which let sparks and flame escape into the attic – also sparks and not fully burned pieces of wood to puff out of the chimney and onto the roof…in this case it was reported to be a cedar shake roof.
