On Chimney Fires
Have you had a chimney fire? Call the local fire department if you haven’t already done so and make sure that any immediate fire hazard has been addressed. Anytime you have a chimney fire it’s good to get the fire department down as soon as possible so that they can analyze the situation and use the necessary technology to locate any abnormal heat patterns inside wall cavities and other areas you just can’t see. Once the fire department has cleared any potential trouble areas, and that should be done immediately during and after any chimney fire, your next call should be to Sin Cal Chimneys to do a full cleaning and inspection to make sure the fire didn’t damage any of the chimney, flue, or other structural components like chimney caps, masonry joints, brick, block, etc.
