Chimney fire at Charles City coffee house

Posted: Updated:

A Charles City coffee house needs to rebuild their chimney after a fire this morning.

The Charles City Fire Department says they were called to Aroma's Coffee at 105 North Main Street just before 10:30 a.m. for a chimney fire.

Once on scene, firefighters found that soot had built up in a chimney for a coffee bean roaster and caught on fire.

Firefighters took down the chimney to reach the smoldering soot. They say fire had spread into the wall within about three feet of the chimney.

There was minimal fire damage, light smoke damage and no water damage to the building. Businesses next to the coffee shop were not damaged.

No injuries were reported.
