For those of us who monitor scanner radios often, we are already seeing a large amount of fire calls as a result of fireplace usage. More than one-third of Americans use fireplaces, wood stoves and other fuel-fired appliances as primary heat sources in their homes. Unfortunately, many people are unaware of the fire risks when heating with wood and solid fuels. Heating fires account for 36% of residential home fires in rural areas every year. Often these fires are due to creosote buildup in chimneys and stovepipes. All home heating systems require regular maintenance to function safely and efficiently. The U.S. Fire Administration (USFA) encourages you to practice the following fire safety steps to keep those home fires safely burning. We want everyone to keep themselves and family safe this winter. Remember, fire safety is your personal responsibility …Fire Stops With You!
Keep Fireplaces and Wood Stoves Clean •Have your chimney or wood stove inspected and cleaned annually by a certified chimney specialist. •Clear the area around the hearth of debris, decorations and flammable materials. •Leave glass doors open while burning a fire. Leaving the doors open ensures that the fire receives enough air to ensure complete combustion and keeps creosote from building up in the chimney. •Close glass doors when the fire is out to keep air from the chimney opening from getting into the room. Most glass fireplace doors have a metal mesh screen which should be closed when the glass doors are open. This mesh screen helps keep embers from getting out of the fireplace area. •Always use a metal mesh screen with fireplaces that do not have a glass fireplace door. •Install stovepipe thermometers to help monitor flue temperatures. •Keep air inlets on wood stoves open, and never restrict air supply to fireplaces. Otherwise you may cause creosote buildup that could lead to a chimney fire.
Safely Burn Fuels •Never use flammable liquids to start a fire. •Use only seasoned hardwood. Soft, moist wood accelerates creosote buildup. In pellet stoves, burn only dry, seasoned wood pellets. •Build small fires that burn completely and produce less smoke. •Never burn cardboard boxes, trash or debris in your fireplace or wood stove.
