A  possible chimney fire in the town of Union Sunday evening was called in for the Endwell Fire Department for it's fire crews to respond at  5:30 p.m.

Vestal, West Corners and Union Center fire departments were requested & toned out to repondas a second alarm was sounded for heavy smoke at the fireground.

Fire was  burning in the first floor inside the chimney, and began to extend into the second floor bedroom. Fire crews extinguished the fire in 20 minutes.

Home owners were home at the time and Fire Chief Winchell said they were active in suppressing the fire.

"The people had just bought the house within the past year or two and we really haven't gotten into the investigation to see if it was a faulty install or a maintenance problem," said Fire Chief of the Endwell Fire Department Jeff Winchell. "We're really not sure yet."

No injuries were reported. The cause of the fire is unknown at this time, and is under investigation.
