One reason that chimney fires can be so dangerous is due to their ability to burn undetected by home residents. Chimney fires can smolder for long periods of time, then suddenly erupt into violent burning flames or penetrate into the home's wooden structure. At other times, you may not even know there was a fire until it has burned out. However, consider a chimney fire as a warning sign that another fire may occur in the near future.
