Merrimack chimney fire quickly extinguished
Merrimack Fire Capt. Scott Simpson said crews were called to 8 Woodward Road at 8:11 p.m. on a report of a fire in a chimney. Upon arrival, firefighters saw that fire had spread into an adjacent wall.
Simpson said firefighters had the fire under control by 8:30 p.m., and prevented the flames from spreading elsewhere in the home.
The homeowner, who was home at the time of the fire, was able to stay in the house last night. Simpson estimated $5,000 or less of damage occurred to the chimney and wall.
No injuries were reported, and Simpson said while the exact cause of the fire is under investigation, it is not considered suspicious.
