ESFD extinguishes chimney flue fire on Christmas morning

Wednesday, December 27, 2017

Eureka Springs Fire & EMS responded

to a chimney flue fire on Christmas morning,

finding flames coming from the flue

upon arrival.

The property owner had already closed

the damper and removed the burning logs

from the fireplace.

Firefighters utilized a positive pressure

fan and an ABC extinguisher to finish putting

the fire out.

They removed the cap and opened the

top to check for fire extension into the attic

area, with a thermal imager being used

throughout the home to ensure the fire

stopped there. Eleven firefighters responded

to the scene.
