In recent years, there has been a disturbing trend in the growing number of fires caused in chimneys and fireplaces. A chimney that is dirty, blocked or in disrepair can inhibit proper venting of smoke up the flue and can also cause a chimney fire. Nearly all residential fires originating in the chimney are preventable. An annual chimney inspection by a professional chimney sweep can prevent fire or carbon monoxide poisoning.
