Several volunteer fire companies were called to a home along Mineo Drive in Millcreek around 6:30 Sunday night.
The homeowner decided to take the chill off by lighting a fire but smoke backed up into the house. Quick work by firefighters kept damage to a minimum.
If you do have a fireplace, get your chimney checked out. Soot buildup can cause a smoky problem and in some cases even more if that soot catches firer and spreads to the structure
