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.

  • Wish list season is upon us again - October 17, 2014
    Late October is a bad time of year for me. If I were independently wealthy, it wouldn’t be so bad. But I’m not. I’m a journalist, so it’s a little painful. It’s rough because this is when the Christmas catalogs start hitting the mailbox, and they’re chock-full of gear I wish I had. From the […]
