It smell like it is wet in the chemney,We haven't had much rain and i do have a cap on the chemney. As far as starting a fire to dry it out I have ran out of fire wood. I think that I will get some insulation and plug the chemney.

Thats what I am going to do today, After I run a hot fire through it.....
