The colder weather is no doubt prompting some to kindle some evening fires in their woodstoves.  With that in mind, Jackson Hole Fire/EMS inspector Kathy Clay says some preparations should be made in the interest of safety.  Those preparations include cleaning the chimney and developing a plan for properly disposing of ashes.  Clay points out that anyone cleaning out their woodstoves or fireplaces need to be cautious about the disposal of ashes which can remain “live” for days after a fire.   Clay says putting ashes into a dumpster or garbage can prematurely could lead to them starting a fire there which could then extend to other structures.  Several structure fires in early 2011 were the result of improperly disposed ashes.

  • Why can’t I find old-school camo? Wait, don’t answer that. - August 27, 2014
    Where did that good old, brown, tan and black camo pattern go? You know what I mean. The pattern duck and goose hunters used to wear all the time. It was just splotches of dark brown, light brown and a little bit of black. Big splotches. I’ve been complaining for years that you can’t find […]
