This week's fire prevention tip is on fireplace safety:
Always use proper fitting fireplace screens or glass doors, to prevent flying sparks from igniting nearby combustibles.
When cleaning your fireplace, ashes should be placed in metal containers and stored outside your home.
Have your chimney professionally inspected and cleaned if necessary at least once a year to remove soot and creosote that could ignite and burn.
Only burn materials that were designed for the fireplace. If artificial logs are used, follow instructions on the packaging.
