The Inside Outside Guys ~ Inspect Your Chimney for Your Family’s Safety
From The Detroit News | By Ken Calverley and Chuck Breidenstein
DETROIT, August 24, 2023 ~ Cooler evenings and the smells of autumn inspire many of us to seek alternative heat sources in the home.
One such choice is to build a wood burning fire in the fireplace. But the National Fire Protection Association cautions us to proceed with care.
An additional warning comes from Jeremiah Campbell, owner of Brickworks Property Restoration in Macomb County. His observation is blunt, honest and to the point: We are intentionally building a live fire inside our home not realizing that 30% of house fires began as a cozy fire in the fireplace.
And 90% of these are triggered by a buildup of soot in the firebox, smoke chamber and chimney.
