Branford Fire Department Responds to 2 Chimney Fires

Branford, CT, January 4, 2015: Branford Firefighters were kept busy on Sunday afternoon as they responded to chimney fires at homes on Pinski Drive and Ivy Street. One of the fires was caused by a build-up of residue in the chimney and the other caused by an overloaded wood stove according to Deputy Chief William Pepe. “Both homeowners were very luck that the fires were contained to the woodstoves and chimneys, and there was no additional damage to the homes.” added Pepe.

“In recent years we have seen an increase in the number of homes using alternative heat sources such as woodstoves and fireplaces. Residents should have their chimneys cleaned and inspected each fall just prior to the heating season. ” stated Shaun Heffernan, Acting Chief / Fire Marshal. Heffernan added “Each year we also see fires caused by improper disposal of fireplace ashes. People need to keep in mind that ashes can stay hot for up to 4 days. They should be placed in a metal bucket, wet down and stored outside and away from the house and other combustible while they cool.”
