TOWN OF ALABAMA, N.Y. - In Genesee County, folks got a reminder to let firefighters do what they do best.

Fire officials say a man climbed up on his roof to try to push his chimney over after a fire broke out at a house on Bloomingdale Road right before 7 a.m. Sunday morning.

Officials say told the house is now a total loss and the man had to go to the hospital with burns to his feet.

The fire was able to spread quickly because of the high winds that blew the flames upward.
