MEDIA RELEASE:  Today, 1/21/19, shortly after 1:00 PM, the SWFD was dispatched to a service call on Grace Road for a crackling sound coming from a chimney attached to a wood stove.  Upon arrival, Car 19/Deputy Chief found smoke showing from the roof and chimney and called a working structure fire. Fire was located in the ceiling space above the wood stove area, and crews made a quick knock down. Mutual aid was received from Manchester Fire Rescue EMS Engine Company #5 at the scene, and station coverage was provided by Manchester Fire Department 8th District and the Broad Brook Fire Department. Crews worked hard and quickly in near-zero temperatures to stop the fire from extending to the rest of the home. There were no injuries, and the cause of the fire is being investigated by the South Windsor Fire Marshal’s Office. Thanks to the support of the SWPD, 911 Dispatchers, SW Public Works, and Ambulance Service of Manchester.
