Always keep all combustible materials at least 76mm from the front of the fireplace when in use. Always use the Chimney Starter in well ventilated area so that smoke will not exhaust into the room. Never put any volatile substance in the fireplace. Always confirm that no volatile liquids such as gasoline, charcoal starter, lighter fluid, lantern fuel, or paraffin are not located near the front of the fireplace. Remember to put that Chimney Starter somewhere safe once you have poured the coals into the grill, you do not want pets or guests bumping into it while it is still hot.
