Bird Nest Causes Chimney Fire!
March 1, 2005, a quick knock down by firefighters saved a home from extensive fire damage. A bird's nest in the fireplace chimney had caught fire and started the chimney chase and attic on fire. Crews attacked the fire from the attic as another crew vented the roof by removing the chimney. Luckily neighbors spotted the fire and got the occupants out of the home.
