A chimney fire in Bethel was quickly extinguished on Friday evening. Firefighters responded to Whitney Road on a report of the minor fire downtown. Bethel Fire & EMS officials say April isn't the traditional times for chimney fire season, but urged residents to keep up with safety precautions. They note this is especially important as brush fire season winds down. Residents should obtain a permit from the fire marshal's office and check the fire danger before burning brush.
