Chimney fires are a dangerous and serious problem to have, but the good news is that they are also almost entirely preventable. Only use seasoned, dry wood, newspapers and dry kindling. Burning cardboard boxes, regular trash or wrapping paper will cause the creation of excess creosote and put your home and family in danger. If your chimney is clean, there will not be a fire; therefore, regular inspections and cleanings are necessary to ensure you and your home have a safe and happy winter season.
