Seventy-five percent of chimney fires are caused by creosote buildup!
A dirty chimney builds up creosote deposits that can easily catch a wayward spark and cause a home fire. That's why it's important to:
- Keep chimneys clean and vented.
- Hire a certified chimney sweep to clean and inspect your chimney annually.
- Always make sure your chimney flue is open before you start your fire.
