Firefighters from Altadena and Pasadena responded to a report of a non-visible fire at a home on Glen Canyon and Roosevelt Wednesday night.
According to the homeowner, his wife was burnng some paper in the fireplace and smoke continued to fill the area even though they could see no fire. According to the scanner, firefighters were investigating the possibility that the fire was going on behind the wall.
A large ladder truck from the Pasadena Fire Department delivered firefighters to the roof, where smoke was pouring out of the chimney. Firefighters requested a water-filled fire extinguisher, which another firefighter brought up to the roof and emptied near the chimney.
