    FIRE SAFETY Info and TIPS of the WEEK

    Don't use excessive amounts of wrapping paper to build fires in the fireplace. It's possible to ignite creosote in the chimney by overbuilding the fire. Keep flammable materials away from your fireplace mantle; a spark from the fireplace could easily ignite them.
