Is your chimney ready for winter?

We have some pics of our structure fire this evening near Hawk Valley involving a chimney fire that spread to the attic of the home. This fire goes in the WIN column for an effective save. Great work to our team for a fast fire attack! This is a good reminder, and an unfortunate tradition we’ve had over some last years, to have structure fires of this type around and on holidays while folks are being festive. This is not our first fire on Turkey Day. So here is a reminder to have your chimney or wood stove cleaned every year and inspected for proper operation before a chimney/flue fire occurs at your home. It can save your house and maybe the lives of someone you love….and yourself.Thanks for the quick help from Crystal Fire, Collegeville Fire, and Paron Fire for the assistance.
