Windsor Fire says that a  fire in a second floor fireplace escaped the chimney in the attic and caught the roof on fire at 280 Campbell Friday night.

Fire crews were called to the duplex just off of University Avenue just after 6:30 and were able to extinguish the fire quickly, but spent several hours on scene dousing hot spots.

Investigators also say that there was no working smoke alarms in the building, and that the owner will be charged.

Damage is estimated to be $175,000.  There was no injuries.
