(BLOOMINGTON) - Firefighters contained a chimney fire in a home near Lake Monroe Sunday afternoon, putting out a blaze that had shot up into the attic.

Perry-Clear Creek Capt. Randy Roudebush says two engines from his department, as well as a unit from Van Buren Township, were dispatched to 1368 East Zinnia Drive at 4:33 p.m.

Flames from a fireplace in the basement of the home escaped the metal chimney flue and ignited exterior walls of the structure.

Firefighters were on the scene for about 2 half hours.
