We live in Oregon and for over 20 years have rented a place that has a fireplace chimney. Occasionally, in the early winter evenings we will build a fire. We clean the fireplace on a regular basis. But we get tired of the Landlord asking us to clean the chimney at our expense every year. I would think that a Fireplace would be an tangible amenity, just like a dishwasher, refrigerator, stove, hot water heater and toilet. The landlord is responsible for keeping those amenities in safe working order; if they stop working the landlord by law has to repair them. So if a fireplace is part of an amenity, wouldn't the landlord be responsible for keep the chimney clean and fire safe so we can use it?
