Chiminea.....fun to have but be careful!
Do you have a chiminea, a fire pit or an outside fireplace at your home? More and more homeowners are enjoying socializing around a fire……something that not too long ago, other than an old fashion campfire, was restricted to indoor fireplaces or woodburning stoves. As more homeowners are buying portable fire pits and having outdoor fireplaces built, the need to be vigilant with fire safety is critical.
Common sense rules the day when it comes to fires. Don’t leave fires unattended, don’t leave them under the guidance of a child, contain the flame so embers do not fly off into dry grass, mulch or rooftops, always extinguish when done, and never throw hot embers into a trash receptacle. Common sense, right? We all would think so, but every year unintended fires take lives, destroy homes, and damage the land because someone was careless or just simply not thinking.
So, to keep you loved ones and your home safe from fire while enjoying your patio fireplace, always use common sense and err on the side of caution.
