Fireplace and Woodstove Safety Tips:

  • Inspect and clean woodstove pipes and fireplace chimneys annually. Make sure to check monthly for any damage or obstructions.
  • Never burn trash, paper, or green wood. These can smolder and cause smoke to fill your home.
  • Use a fireplace screen that is heavy enough to stop rolling logs and big enough to cover the entire opening of the fireplace to catch flying sparks.
  • Make sure the fire is completely out before leaving the house or going to bed.
  • Store cooled ashes in a tightly sealed metal container outside the home. After three days the ashes can be bagged and thrown away.
