The Engine 4 crew went to work clearing the fireplace while the Ladder 5 crew utilized their aerial device to get to the roof and drop chains down the chimney to loosen burning debris. Fire was also found burning in the adjacent wall of the chimney. The Engine 4 crew carefully removed the wall and extinguished the burning material. With no additional extension crews cleared in approx 45 minutes.
