(StatePoint) Getting cozy this winter? You’ll definitely want to make use of your fireplace. But remember, you’ll need to take extra precautions to keep everybody and everything safe.
The use of a safety screen is a must -- in fact, they’re required on all fireplaces manufactured after January 1, 2015 -- so if your fireplace didn’t come with one or if it is not in good shape, get a retrofit safety screen. Even with a screen, it is also crucial that you give your fireplace clearance, keeping little ones, pets and flammables away.
