Clean Your Chimney for Santa and Safety

According to reports, there have been four working fires in Northern Westchester associated with chimney fires, including one on Route 117 in Bedford Hills.

To avoid chimney fires:

•Use seasoned woods only;
•Build smaller, hotter fires that bum more completely and produce less smoke;
•Never burn cardboard boxes, wrapping paper, trash or Christmas trees; and
•Have the chimney inspected and cleaned on a regular basis.

Have your chimney cleaned by a professional before the fire department needs to come clean your chimney with a high power hose.
