It's that time of the year: Chimney inspections

So far, there have been 3 chimney fires this year, and Medford Fire and Rescue wants to remind everyone to get their chimneys inspected before firing it up.

Cracks in the mortar can cause gas to exscape into the attic which could potentially cause an attic fire.

Over time, tar and ash deposits, which are known as creosote, build up and can also catch fire.

Deputy Fire Marshal Greg Kleinberg says it's better to use seasoned wood to burn, and make sure to have a fire place screen to keep embers from popping out.
