Carson City Firefighters were called to a house at 2929 Lukens Sunday evening not far south of College Parkway on a report of smoke drifting up from the attic and roof. Firefighters quickly grabbed ladders and began tracing the source of the smoke which they pinpointed inside the attic and possibly penetrating the home’s second floor living areas. Investigators will be checking to see if a partially obstructed chimney may have leaked heat from the base of the chimney and ignited roof insulation.
Firefighters see smoke from underneath chimney pipe.
Firefighters go after the smoldering roof materials near the chimney pipe.
Firefighters cut holes in the roof to trace the extent of fire damage.
Firefighters vent the roof to get a better look at the fire’s pathway through the attic.
Firefighters start digging through more roofing materials to assess the fire’s spread. Fire seems contained but firefighters might be at it most of the night just to make sure the fire is completely out. The house is owned by the family that lives here. Firefighters say the home is no longer inhabitable until repairs are made.

A small army of Carson City Firefighters, their wives, kids and others raised a sizeable sum of money from donations they received from passing motorists as they drove by McFadden Square downtown on Carson Street this past weekend. It was an annual event to raise money to help fight cancers like Leukemia and Lymphoma.
Firefighters set up stair-climbing machines (on steroids) outside the Fox Brewpub as part of their training and equipment, inside a downtown high-rise in Seattle in competition with many other fire departments joining them in their fight against cancer. It’s an annual event held in many parts of the country as firefighters not only give their all to protect lives and property, but also to give cancer-struck
