Shown removing bricks from Emmanuel Episcopal Church’s chimney in Cumberland on Friday are Macon Jones, owner of Custom Brick Layers of LaVale and Brandon Weir, an employee. The company has been contracted to remove the church’s chimney because it’s no longer in use, Macon said. Once completed, the pair will block off where the chimney once was. Macon said the chimney was part of a standard fireplace and later converted to be used as a vent for another heating source.
