Fire Prevention

Chimney Fire Bags

Chimney Fire Bags are free from the Burton Volunteer Fire Department. These are basically bags of fire extinguisher powder. Simply throw them in the fire box if you have a chimney fire and completely or partially close the fire box to vent the powder up the chimney. Contact any member of the fire department, Brian Harrop (fire chief) at 265-3492, or come down to the fire department during practice Monday nights at 7:00.
