Ways to keep the fire you want from becoming the one you don't. Protect yourself from chimney fires.

  • Use seasoned woods only (dryness is more important than hard wood versus soft wood considerations)
  • Build smaller, hotter fires that bum more completely and produce less smoke
  • Never burn cardboard boxes, wrapping paper, trash or Christmas trees; these can spark a chimneyfire
  • Install stovepipe thermometers to help monitor flue temperatures where wood stoves are in use, so you can adjust burning practices as needed
  • Have the chimney inspected and cleaned on a regular basis

The desire to serve. The courage to act. The ability to perform.
