Winter weather has decided to stay for a little visit this weekend. No doubt many of you will be looking for a variety of ways to keep warm. One popular way is having a nice warm fire in your fireplace or wood stove.
Unfortunately, MCFRS has responded to several home fires this winter season due to improperly discarded fire place ashes. Many people do not realize that these ashes can actually remain hot enough to reignite and start a fire several days AFTER the fire is out!
Please, cool your fireplace ashes and take a moment to review the info graphic below to learn how to SAFELY dispose of them.
