Chimney Fire for Crew 1

Just before 8:30 on Thursday night Engine and Tower 611, Engine 618B, Medic 615B from Sterling Volunteer Rescue Squad, and Battalion Chief 601 and Safety 600 from Loudoun County Fire and Rescue were alerted for a chimney fire in Sterling Park. Chief 615 added on to the call. Engine and Tower 611 arrived on the scene to find smoke and embers coming from the chimney. Tower 611 put out the fire in the fireplace and removed the contents, which were fully extinguished outside by E611. Crews were then able to move on to putting out the fire in the chimney, removing smoke from the structure, and checking for damage (that could lead to further fire spread).
