They either tore down the top of chimney and patched the roof,or never built it above the roof line.It appears the have a large propane tank beside the house and no longer needed the brick chimney.

Yeah, but that one looks like it's ok. If it goes it'll only take out that side of the house. The rest of it is fine. LOL

A lot of homes have similar pillars down in the coal area for stabilization due to subsidence.Especially near or in Centrailia PA. They are referred to as Polish chimneys.

I did too, our underground tank had to be so far away from the house unless property lines were a problem, then they didn't care! But then again I see a lot of the propane back up generators around here with the 100 gallon propane tanks sitting right next to the house, next to the sliding door or under the second level windows. These are new installations which I would have thought had to be inspected.

I've drove by this house for a couple of weeks now. When I first saw it I couldn't believe what I was seeing. There is actually a dark spot on the underside of the roof a few inches above the flue! I don't understand how anyone would consider venting anything there. Other than an electric heater lol.

I finally was able to get it in the frame during a drive by today so the pic isn't real good, but you can see my confusion clear enough lol

There is no code that restricts how close a propane tank can be to a house. They can be directly adjacent. There are codes that say how close a propane tank can be to an ignition source such as an A/C condensor. Also the vent fromt he regulator has to be x number of feet from an opening window or igntion source.

NFPA 58 lists distances that a propane tank has to be from a window or ignition source.

125 gallon and small tanks can be against a building as long as they are 5 feet from an operable window and 10 feet from an ignition source (such as a AC unit).

up to 500 gallon must be 10 feet from the house.
Larger sizes depend on application on quanity of tanks.
Property line distances are listed also.

If the local building code references NFPA 58, then it is enforcable. Most propane companies would follow it due to liability.
