Article Summary: 

Fire safety tips to keep in mind when heating a home in winter include inspecting and cleaning the chimney, keeping flammable objects away from a wood stove or fireplace, using a glass or metal screen to prevent embers or sparks from flying out, building a fire in fireplaces with a small amount of paper, extinguishing the fire before going to sleep, using synthetic logs, and storing cool ashes in a tightly covered metal container. Gas furnaces should also be inspected by a professional to ensure it is in good working condition.
