Fire Places and Chimneys
- Use only dried woods and never use flammable liquids to start a fire. Dispose of cool ashes in a covered metal container. Never leave a fire unattended. When burning, keep the damper open, flammable materials away, and the glass door/screen closed.
- Have chimneys cleaned professionally by a chimney sweep once a year
- Never burn papers, boxes, or Christmas trees in the fireplace.
