Nyack volunteer firefighters found that a Hudson Avenue building had a blocked chimney Thursday night after a neighbor reported seeing fire.
A resident of an apartment on Broadway reported at about 10:23 p.m. that he saw a possible fire on the roof of a nearby building. Nyack Fire Department Deputy Chief Vincent Reid said firefighters discovered the problem was at 39 Hudson Ave.
Firefighters went into the building and onto its roof to check a fireplace and a metal chimney. Reid said the chimney appeared to have been blocked.
The building did not appear to have fire damage and smoke did not get inside the building.
The fire investigation closed two blocks of Broadway by the Nyack Post Office and Hudson Avenue to traffic. No one was injured.
Firefighters completed their operations at about 11:30 p.m.
