St. Albans Town chimney fire

Posted: Updated:

A Chimney fire is the likely cause of a blaze that destroyed a home in St. Albans Town.

The owner of the home on Pike Drive called for help a little after 9:30 a.m. Sunday.  When firefighters arrived they found heavy fire in the roof of the 2-story building.  No one was injured.  Officials say a wood stove was the likely culprit. They remind homeowners -- especially after this long winter -- to clean and inspect their chimneys.

"Make sure your Chimneys are clean when your burning wood.  It's been an extremely cold winter and got to make sure we stay on top of things and keep things maintained," said St. Albans Town Chief Harold Cross.

Chief Cross says while some personal items from the first floor are salvageable, the entire house is considered a loss.
