Flue Fires And Cleaning Your Chimney

Make sure your chimney has been cleaned to avoid potential disaster from a flue fire. The fire district treats flue fires like incipient house fires. Flue fires can reach temperatures in excess of 1,100 degrees F., damage the structural integrity of the chimney and set wooden members on fire. For information on what to do in case of a flue fire and details about cleaning your chimney, see articles previously published in the High Prairian (December 2011, p.7). http://www.highprairie.us/%21oldSite/high_prairian/v11n4/v11n4.pdf
