  • Washington chimneys involved in maintenance operation

    A scheme has been established in Washington, US to properly restore damaged chimneys and flue accessories.

    New paintwork, roofs and chimneys will all be set up as part of the programme at Fort Worden State Park, according to the Pt Leader.

    The website has reported that work is estimated for completion next month and Kate Burke, Washington state parks' manager of Fort Worden Area Parks, told the website that it is planning to continue the preservation work afterwards.

    This news comes after the Herald Sun reported that children in New Zealand are being advised to inform Santa Claus of any chimney damage that is affecting their homes.

    The Canterbury region of the country suffered a devastating earthquake in September and www.santashelper.co.nz is now allowing children to update the website with any news of chimney disrepair.

    September's earthquake was measured at 7.1 magnitude, causing one in nine houses to require chimney repair work.

  • Fire devastates chimney of US home

    A fire in Minnesota, US has caused severe damage to a home's chimney cowl and later spread outside of the property.

    The blaze in the Maple Grove region was caused by the home's fireplace, causing smoke to circulate throughout the property and severely damage its chimney, according to Wcco.com.

    Wcco.com also reports that the fire opened up a hole in an area of the house, though nearby homes were not affected by the flames, as winds did not play a factor in the incident.

    Meanwhile, house fires have also occurred in Britain over the past few weeks, including one incident in the Hartlebury area of Kidderminster.

    The Kidderminster Shuttle reported the blaze, which happened at a property down Walton Road and demanded the presence of two fire crews.

    In addition, the incident led to Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service providing guidance for homeowners.

    A representative told the paper that chimney flues must be inspected and cleaned regularly.
