Ladder truck helps douse chimney fire in Pittston

PITTSON — Firefighters from several communities battled a stubborn chimney fire Friday morning on Blodgett Road.

“It took a while to get it out,” Pittston Fire Chief Jason Farris said. “We got to it before it got into the walls.” 

The fire was called in around 6:45 a.m. at a home undergoing renovation about a mile off Kelley Road, Farris said. The 2 1/2 story home had a steeply pitched roof, which, combined with falling snow, made reaching the chimney a challenge, Farris said. 

Gardiner firefighters were summoned to the scene with a ladder truck, Farris said. Randolph and Farmingdale, which provide mutual aid for all structure and chimney fires, also responded, Farris said.

The fire was under control by 8 a.m. and caused no damage to the home, Farris said.
