Faulty chimney cap fills home with smoke

Hinsdale firefighters responded to a 9-1-1 call of a house fire on the 300 block of East Walnut Street Friday afternoon. Upon arrival, firefighters found a fire in the fireplace and smoke filling the house. The fire did not spread beyond the fireplace. Deputy Chief Jon Carlson determined the weather cap at the top of the chimney was not in place, which caused the smoke to fill the home. After repositioning the cap, the house was ventilated.
