Chimney Safety Institute of America says:
"Your house’s chimney is easy to forget. It’s not used every day, and for many people it’s been an afterthought since May or earlier. The fireplace and chimney are neglected until the moment they’re needed.
Don’t let that neglect turn into a 911 call.
“Fires in chimneys can start for a variety of reasons. They can be poorly built, or incorrectly designed, or the chimney flue sees a buildup of creosote over time,” says Ashley Eldridge, director of education for CSIA, based in Plainfield, IN. “If you’ve ignored the need for an inspection, you are taking a risk.”
Your chances of having another chimney fire increase if you’ve already had one. Chimney fires are not always a blazing infernos on the side of your house. They can be slow-burning, and you may not even know you’ve had one.
The National Fire Protection Association recommends annual chimney inspections, and cleaned when needed; your approach should be based on usage."
