With the majority of chimney fires happening between January and March each year, fire brigades across the country have been reminding open fire and wood burner owners to ensure that their chimney has been swept in the last year if using solid fuel; and more regularly if using a wood burner.
West Sussex Fire Service alone attended 125 chimney fires in the 12 months up to November 2016 and they say keeping your chimney clean will not only prevent chimney fires but also carbon monoxide poisoning and structural damage to the chimney.
