Wood Stove Safety Tips
The resurgence of the wood-burning stove as a supplementary source of heat has led to an alarming - and growing - number of fires, traceable to careless installation or misuse.
If a wood stove is installed properly and carefully operated, there is little safety risk. However, many people take shortcuts in an effort to save money or time. This often results in fires that destroy property and endanger lives. Always have a fire escape plan that you practice regularly with your family.
