safer enjoyment of your fireplace, please use the following safety precautions:
- Be sure the fireplace was constructed for actual use, not just for
decoration. Inspect it to be sure that it has adequate protective linings and
smoke ducts and that the chimney is clear and in good repair.
- If installing a factory-made fireplace, insure that it is not near any
combustible materials and has adequate flame and heat barriers.
- Open the damper before lighting the fire and keep it open until the ashes
are cool. This will avert the build-up of poisonous gases, especially while
the family is sleeping.
- Never use gasoline, charcoal lighter or other fuel to light or relight a
fire because the vapors can explode. Never keep flammable fuels near a fire.
Vapors can travel the length of a room and explode.
- Do not use coal or charcoal in a fireplace because of the danger of carbon
monoxide build-up. It is not a good idea to burn trash or wrappings in
fireplace fires because polystyrene foam and other coated materials can
generate deadly fumes. Flying paper embers could also ignite the roof.
- Do not treat artificial logs like real logs. Artificial logs are usually
made of sawdust and wax and have special burning properties. Be sure to read
the instructions on the logs and follow them carefully. Use just one log at a
time and do not add another log until the fire is completely out. Never add an
artificial log to a natural wood fire that is already burning. Wait at least
two hours before adding an artificial log to a natural log fire because it
could cause a flare-up.
Do not poke artificial logs because the flaming wax could stick to the poker
and drop onto the floor or carpet. Poking a log could also cause a flare-up.
- Home rolled newspaper logs should never be soaked in flammable fuels of
any kind because of the severe danger of explosion. Soaking the newspaper in
water either before rolling or during rolling removes the clay content and
will provide a better burning log. Then, stack the logs on end and let them
dry for two weeks in the basement. When lighting the newspaper logs, use
kindling just as you would for a regular fire.
tools are essential to maintaining a well-burning wood fire.
- Do not overload the fireplace. Large fires can lead to overheating of wall
or roof materials, particularly if the fireplace is constructed of metal.
- Always use a
fireplace screen or
spark guard around the fireplace to keep sparks from flying out and to
protect children and adults from accidental clothing ignition.
- Warn children about the danger of fire. Do not let them play with fire.
- Keep flammable materials such as carpets, pillows, furniture or papers
away from the fireplace area. Be sure the Christmas tree is not close enough
to be ignited by a spark. Be especially careful of accidentally igniting
holiday wrapping papers.
- Make sure that the fire is out completely before retiring for the night or
when leaving the house.
