Freeport firefighter Jason Miller reacts as flames shoot out the chimney of a Brown Road home in Pownal on Saturday, where firefighters from Pownal and Freeport responded to a chimney fire. Miller and Lt. Ken Coslet attacked the problem from the roof, using a weight and chain to clear the chimney of material that had built up, but not before flames erupted several times. No damage was done to the 19th century home, a fortunate reminder to homeowners who burn wood to be diligent about keeping chimneys clean and using only seasoned firewood.
