By The Staff

The sound of sirens rushing along Diamond Drive up to Barranca Mesa were heard at 10:30 p.m. Sunday.

Los Alamos Assistant Fire Chief/Fire Marshal Mike Thompson explained that the fire engines were on their way to put out a chimney fire on San Juan Street. The chimney built up creosote from lack of professional cleaning for several years, he said.

Firefighters dropped a chimney bomb down the shaft, which exploded fire suppressant powder on the fire. No injuries were reported.

Thompson urges residents to have their chimneys checked for creosote build-up annually and semi-annually if used excessively.
