The condition of the chimney is blamed as the cause of a fire that destroyed an out building in northeast Lincoln.
Just before 10 p.m. Sunday, Lincoln Fire & Rescue crews were called to the 3000 block of N. 52nd Street for a building on fire.
According to Lincoln Fire Inspector, Roger Chapp, the building housed a wood burning type stove which served to heat water and help heat the house.
Chapp said the chimney had not been cleaned in quite some time and appears to have stored an abundance of heat which ignited the building.
Residents of the house were not effected to require relocation.
The small building was completely destroyed and there is no estimate of damages at the time of our interview with the Inspector.
