  • Do not load woodstove or fireplace with excessive amounts of fuel. Experience counts! Start off with smaller smaller pieces of wood and little of it.
  • Become familiar with location of ABC fire extinguishers in your accommodation.
  • If fire is burning too hot (over 500deg. F. on woodstove):
    WOODSTOVE: Close down damper to shut off air.
    FIREPLACE: Remove excess wood using fire tongs supplied. Smother fire with cold ashes.
  • FLUE FIRE (Roaring sound inside chimney): Use ABC fire extinguishers supplied (not water) and direct flow of contents onto flames and up into the chimney.
  • Never leave a fireplace or woodstove fire unattended after adding new fuel. OK to leave a fireplace or woodstove fire unattended IF THE FIRE IS BURNING DOWN.
  • Leaving camp? Don't remove hot coals or extinguish with water. The fire will burn out as long as there is no fresh fuel.[CLICK HERE for complete operating instructions for wood fires and gas lighting.]
