bricks on top opf chimney flue

South Carolina, United States   

Ssome of our bricks fell onto the closed chimney flue to our woodburning fireplace during the recent rains we suffered in South Carolina.

How do we remove them? Is there a way to remove the whole flue to get to the bricks?

your best bet is to contact a Trained Chimney Professional in your area.
You may be able to grasp the bricks from the top or push them up from the bottom, depending on how many fell in.
Can you open the damper and look up to see if you can gain access from the bottom.
If not then you may have to dis-assemble the chimney to get to the obstructions.
