In this series, I am going to show you several different ways that you could easily light a fire within your fireplace and I am going to show you several safety techniques or things that you need to be aware of when lighting a fire in your house. I'd like to take a moment to talk about fireplace safety. On your fireplace you need to make sure that you have a screen to prevent the ashes from popping out and maybe hitting your rug and starting your house on fire. I have 2 screens on this fireplace. This one is mainly decorative but you could use it also but on the inside I have another screen. I need to make sure and close it anytime I have a fire going on in there that will stop any of the ashes from popping and falling out onto your rug in the living room. You need to make sure that the hearth is nice and clean and that there is no flammable materials right in front of the fireplace. This particular house that I am in is tile right here so it is a pretty safe setup. You just to make sure that anything you can catch on fire is a good distance away from the fireplace.
