Simsbury Fire Company Warns of Chimney Inspection Scam

View Comments ()



    If you’ve gotten a call from the fire department soliciting chimney inspections, you might want to think twice – the Simsbury Volunteer Fire Company says it’s a hoax.

    According to the fire company, scammers have been calling residents “to pressure the homeowner with scare tactics talking about the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning.”

    The fire department said police are investigating and that authorities are not responsible for these calls.

    Anyone who receives such a call should contact Simsbury police at 860-658-3100.
