When it gets chilly outside we all want to go inside and cozy up near the fireplace, however please keep these tips in mind when using fireplaces or wood stoves:

  • Do not use flammable liquids to start or accelerate any fire
  • Don’t leave the fire unattended
  • Keep children and pets a safe distance away
  • Have the chimney inspected annually and cleaned if necessary, especially if it has not been used in a while
  • Keep a glass or metal screen in front of the opening 0f the fireplace
