Fireplace fire in Oceana?

1/5/2022 (Permalink)

A dog is sleeping next to a roaring fire in a house. We are trusted leaders in fire damage restoration in Raleigh County.

January is cold in Oceana. The average high temperature is 42 degrees, and the average low temperature is a freezing 23 degrees. It is the perfect time of the year to have a fire in the fireplace.  SERVPRO® of Beckley responds to fire damage emergencies every year and offer these safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association:

Fireplace Safety

  • Keep anything that can burn at least three feet away from the fireplace
  • Have a three-foot “kid-free zone” around open fires and space heaters
  • Have heating equipment and chimneys cleaned and inspected every year by a qualified professional
  • Make sure the fireplace has a sturdy screen to stop sparks from flying into the room. Ashes should be cool before putting them in a metal container. Keep the container a safe distance away from your home.
  • Test smoke alarms at least once a month

Wood Stove Safety

  • Install wood-burning stoves following the manufacturer’s instructions or have a professional do the installation. All fuel-burning equipment should be vented to the outside to avoid carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning.
