Hi, I'm Ken Fargason with Nashville Fireplace and Grills out of Nashville, Tennessee, tonight we're going to talk about how to build a fire. What you're going to need is some nice, dry, seasoned firewood, not only split wood but some small kindling. There are several materials that you can buy at your local hardwares store or discount store, such as Dura-Log and those type of products. You never want to use a full log but you can break into small piece, place it under your kindling. To help get that kindling going, in place of newspaper, magazines or items like that. You never want to use anything flammable to start your fire, such as gasoline, fire starter or any of those type of chemicals. Once you get a fire going and you're starting to develop some, some coals underneath and you continually add pieces of split wood. Once you have a nice, deep coal bed, then you can take a larger log and put on the fire, and you you'll get a nice, long burn out of it. And these are some of the simple ideas to help you start a fire.
