Hart says Christopher Johnson awoke to the blaze and worked diligently to extinguish the flames. Luckily there were no injuries. Damage is estimated at $100-thousand. The Red Cross is offering to aid Johnson with shelter. Hart recommends that residents keep chimneys clean as a fire prevention measure.
