Don’t let the sparks fly this winter.

Nearly 50% of all chimney fires in Oxfordshire happen during January, February and March. If you enjoy cosying up in front of a log fire, make sure the sparks don't fly at home this winter.

Have a cosy home not a fire zone

  • Get your wood burning stove and open fire chimneys swept at least once a year, if you regularly have log fires get it swept more frequently
  • If you have a 1st floor fireplace check that it is clear of debris
  • Store logs away from the fireplace
