Here is a picture of the outside of the house where there was a chimney fire.
Chimneys MUST be inspected regularly for wear, creosote buildup, and cracks.
Your nice cozy fire can turn into a disaster if you do not maintain a safe chimney.
Have a qualified chimney sweep company inspect your fireplace, stove, insert, and chimney annually. Try to time your appointment so that you did not need to use the fireplace for at least 2 full days.
