TRUMBULL, Conn. -- Three fire departments battled a chimney blaze late Tuesday afternoon at a house on Hemlock Trail in Trumbull, according to the Nichols Fire Department.

The responders received the call at around 4:32 p.m.

The first arriving fire chief reported back that there was a heavy smoke condition coming from the residence and requested structure fire protocol, said the department.

Once structure fire protocol was implemented Long Hill Fire Department Fire Department was called in to assist for a rapid intervention team, according to the Nichols Fire Department.

Crews were able to establish a water supply and used ground ladders to access the chimney top from the roof.

Interior crews reported that the fire was isolated to the chimney and had not spread to the structure, according to the fire department.

From the rooftop firefighters used chimney chains to dislodge burning debris and creosote from the chimney.

Firefighters used a booster line with a chimney nozzle to extinguish the fire in the chimney.

Once the fire was confirmed to be out crews overhauled the fireplace and continued to check for hot spots with the thermal imaging camera, said the Nichols Fire Department.
