6 Fireplace Safety Tips

The Home Safety Council has 6 fireplace safety tips worth repeating during this time of year. To prevent house fires and burns while operating your fireplace, remember these tips.

Fireplace Safety Tips

Fireplace Safety Tips:

  1. Burn only seasoned wood, not trash or other flammable items because those may emit poisonous or harmful fumes or ignite.
  2. Use UL-certified creosote logs to prevent the build-up of creosote in your chimney, which should be professionally inspected each year.
  3. Be sure your chimney flue (if applicable) is open before turning on your fireplace.
  4. Keep embers contained with glass doors or a fireplace screen.
  5. Install and make sure smoke detectors are working inside each level of your home, especially near sleeping areas.
  6. To avoid burns, don’t let children play near working fireplaces or wood stoves.
