Brookfield Volunteer Fire Company responded to Brookfield Meadows shortly before 9pm and found fire and smoke conditions. Firefighters accessed the roof and deployed chimney chains and “snuffer” down the chimney. Interior crews cleaned all the burning debris from the wood stove. Firefighters were on scene for little more than an hour. Firefighters are reminding homeowners to have their chimneys, fireplaces and wood stoves cleaned and inspected at least annually to prevent fires like this one.
