Fire officials are investigating a blaze that damaged a home in Glenwood on Tuesday.

The Richfield City Fire Department responded to a fire after people in the home said they smelled smoke and thought there was something wrong with the chimney.

When crews arrived, they found flames coming out of the ceiling near the chimney and traveling along the roof. They had to open the roof to spray down hot spots.

According to the Sevier County Sheriff’s office, it appears the chimney pipe was to blame.

There were no injuries, but authorities say there was significant damage to the home
