January 21, 2024, East Dover and Island Heights Fire Companies were dispatched to a home on St John Ave for a reported chimney fire. The initial call came in from a resident across the lagoon saying they could see visible flames from the chimney. Upon arrival Chief reported heavy fire on chimney and attic. It was quickly upgraded and a call to bring in Silverton and Ocean Beach.  A transitional attack was initiated as one exterior line was stretched to knock down the exterior fire while additional crews went to the second floor and attic to knock down the extension.
