Firefighters doused a fire in the chimney of a home in Palm Desert Thursday, a county fire department spokeswoman said.
The fire was reported at approximately 8 a.m. at a two-story house in the 100 block of Chalaka Place, at Bighorn Golf Club, according to Melody Hendrickson of the Riverside County Fire Department.
When fire crews got on scene, they spotted smoke showing throughout the 3,000 square foot home, Hendrickson said. However, by 9:10 a.m., the fire was contained.
No one was hurt, and the fire was contained to the chimney, Hendrickson said.
