DALTON, Mass. — Dalton firefighters quickly extinguished a stove fire Thursday morning at 5:18 at Zinky's Pub on Daly Avenue.
The department was notified via automatic fire alarm notification and a call in by a citizen passing by while walking their dog. 
Fire Chief Jim Peltier said there was moderate smoke in the detached building upon arrival.
"Engine 3 arrived on scene with no smoke showing. They made entry into the building. It had a moderate amount of smoke within the structure," he said. 
Peltier said there was no one in the building at the time of the fire, but the owners arrived because of the alarm company notification. 
It was concluded after an investigation that the fire was caused by a malfunctioning pellet stove.
"And through an investigation with multiple companies in ventilating the building, it was found to be coming from a defective or malfunctioning pellet stove," Peltier said.
No injuries were reported. Peltier estimated that damages were between $3,000 and $5,000. 
The suppression and ventilation took about an hour. 
Engine 2 and 3, Truck 1, Squad 1, Car 1, and Ambulance 5 responded.
