The National Fire Protection Association states that the fireplace and chimney should be inspected annually with cleaning and repairs done, as necessary. A dirty chimney can be extremely dangerous. It can lead to smoke backing up in the home or worse, a chimney fire. A hot fire around 1000 degrees could easily ignite into a roaring chimney fire. At temperatures exceeding 2000 Degrees, flames and embers can easily land on your roof and ignite the wood framing of your home. The intense heat can also cause the flue to crack or collapse thus causing the interior walls of your house to burst into flames.
