Email Print RSS Facebook Twitter

By Assistant Chief Troy Hipsley
January 8, 2020

On 1/8/2020 Hampstead Truck 2 responded with 5 volunteers to assist units from Manchester VFD and Lineboro VFD with a single family chimney fire. Upon arrival units from Manchester VFD reported fire showing from the chimney of the structure. T-2 arrived on location and laddered the structure using the aerial. Truck 2's crew assumed the roof division and chained the chimney without success. Chimney bombs were dropped down the flue without success. Crews used the chimney snuffer ( a commercially made nozzle that produces an ultra-fine spray, greatly reducing potential water damage) off of E-43 to finally extinguish the fire. Units cleared after operating on scene for approximately 1.5 hrs.

Units: E-43, ET44, RS-4, T-2, E-72
