Chimney Fire

Nothing says "good morning!" like waking up to the stove pipe glowing red and crackling. This was the worst we've ever had and shutting it down didn't help, just had to sit by with a fire extinguisher trying not to panic. It was cleaned 7 weeks ago, for crying out loud. So, time to swap stoves and install some new pipe because we have this problem, albeit in more minor form, every year. Anyway, thought I'd share. Now might be a good time for a chimney safety overhaul if you, like me, have been putting it off.

Sorry about your troubles indie. Good thing this happens now and not after SHTF. I'd hate to think where you'd get replacement anything :(

Was the flue stuck closed?

When you find out what exactly happened, let us know?

This is for a wood stove, right?

I've been wanting to buy one, but I live in a trailer. This kind of thing happening in my house would be the end of it. Not just glowing pipes :(
