Starting the Perfect Fire
Creating the perfect fire starts with using seasoned firewood from Firewood Unlimited. To start a safe fire, crumple paper on the grate within the fireplace and cover it with kindling or manufactured fire starter. (Remove colored comic section before rolling newspaper into starter logs; the colored inks contain lead and can produce toxic gases.) Open the fireplace damper fully and light the paper. Once the kindling or the fire starter is burning brightly, add dry seasoned wood to the fire and close the fire-screen. It's important to avoid overloading the fireplace so the firewood doesn't tumble out. A couple of logs should be suffice.
- Be sure the fireplace was constructed for the actual use, not just for decoration. Inspect it to be sure it has adequate protective linings, smoke ducts, and that the chimney is clear and in good repair.
- Open the damper before lighting the fire and keep it open until the ashes are cool.
- Never use Gasoline, Charcoal lighter or other fuel to light or relight a fire. Never keep flammable fuels near fire.
- Do not use 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.
- Always use a screen 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 the flammable materials such as carpet, pillows, furniture or paper away from the fireplace area. Be sure the Christmas tree is not close enough to be ignited by sparks. Be especially careful of holiday wrapping papers.
- Make sure that the fire is out completely before retiring for the night or when leaving the house.
