Harlem-Roscoe Firefighter were dispatched to Grace Dr. in Roscoe at 4am on Dec. 29 for a report of a chimney fire. Temperature outside was 10 degrees. First in units found fire in the chimney chase and roof area. Firefighters laddered the building and overhauled the chimney chase to reach the fire. The Quint ladder 752 was extended to the roof and firefighters checked for any extension into the attic. Firefighters made a great stop of the fire from spreading into the home.
A MABAS Box 12 to the 2nd Alarm was dispatched sending mutual aid crews to the scene, tenders for water supply and crews to man the stations. Thank you to all the departments that responded!
Residents were outside home when units arrived and no one was injured.
