New York State Fire Reporting System reported that…
- Chimneys are responsible for 1 out of 5 residential fires in the Nation! (NFPA)
- The United States as an industrial country has the worst fire related rates in the civilized world!
- Your home’s heating plant contains fire, one of Nature’s most important yet destructive forces. Used every day at high temperatures the heat passes just mere inches of your wood walls. It makes sense to have a properly working chimney.
In New York Alone, 28.1% of fires start in the fireplace, 19.4% in the kitchen, 8.6% in sleeping areas, 4.9% in cellars, and 4.4% in lounge areas.
