Danvers chimney fire quickly knocked down


After firefighters extinguished the flames, smoke could be seen billowing out of the eaves.

Firefighters climbed the ladder of Danvers Engine 5 to reach the outside of the chimney and cut holes in the side of the building.

The home, which sold this year, is assessed at $325,000, according to town records.

Danvers Engines 2, 3 and 5 and Rescue 1 and a Middleton engine responded, along with Roger Baker’s Rehab Five unit. No firefighters were injured.

“Everyone came home safe,” Farrell said.
