Alderson After School The Mountain Messenger, Tuesday, January 16, 1990 5B By ANDREA GAINER WVU Extension Agent, Home Economics, Greenbrier County Wood's return as an important home heating fuel focuses new at- tention on an old problem --- chim- ney fires. If you recently joined the ranks of wood burners, learn the cause of these dangerous fires and how to guard against them. Such fires occur thousands of times a year in the U.S., causing an estimated $20 million in damages. Minimize risks of chimney fires by understanding what causes them and by taking a few precautions. A cr#osote buildup inside the chimney causes the fires. The creo- sote is a collection of unburned gases and tars from the fireplace, fireplace insert or stove. When this condensed material collects on a relatively cool surface, it will contain a large amount of wa- ter and thus will be fluid-like. If the surface is 150 degrees Fahrenheit or hotter, little water will be present and the creosote will be thick and tar-like. This tar-like material eventu- ally will change to a solid or flaky form. There is no way to prevent the formation of creosote, but it can be minimized. Avoid smoldering fires. Burn seasoned hardwoods when possible. Inspect the chimney thoroughly to be sure there are no cracks and that ash clean-out doors are air tight. Since creosote condenses when Set the stack temperature drops below There is a cooperative effort be- tween parents and the Alderson School staff to supplement Alderson student's education. The Alderson After School program will start the week of January 29 and run until March 23. The eight-week program offers classes to first through ninth graders. It will give the students a chance to try Clay-Art, Basic French and Spanish, Theater Movement, and a MTV-type dance class where the students will learn and do their own choreographies, to perform in the spring, and to produce their own Rock Video. Classes are divided into two age groups. There is one class per age group, per day. Students will be al- lowed to wait .in Bus Hall until the first class starts: For more information, parents should contact the Alderson School for applications or call 445-2880 and ask for Adrienne. 1st -- 4th Grades Mon. 3:45-4:30 Art with clay Tue. 3:15-4:15 Theater/Acting Wed. 3:45-4:20Basic Spanish Thur.

This is especially true where air-tight wood- burners are used. ., Most creosote fires are associ- ated with poor chimneys that have low draft, cold walls and a low rate of burning. With proper installation and main- tenance, and regular inspection and cleaning, your changes of having a Ronceverte chimney fire are very low. Inspect the inside of your chimney or stove- pipe. If there is more than one-quar- ter inch of creosote buildup, or if there are small raided lumps of creosote, a cleaning is needed. If the worst should happen and you have a chimney fire, here are some suggestions from West Vir- ginia University Cooperative Exten- sion Service safety specialists. Call the fire department, You may not need the firefighters, but calling later may be too late. Get everyone in the house ready to leave the house if neces- sary. Cut off air to the fire. Close draft and damper controls on a stove or cover the opening of the fireplace with any rigid, noncom- bustible material. There will be a strong suction from the fire, so use good judgment in what you use close to the fireplace opening. Don't close the fireplace damper, since this will turn smoke from the fire- place into the house. Use a fire extinguisher. A flare- like type designed for chimney fires is best. Ignite it like a road flare and place it inside the stove or fireplace. Regular carbon dioxide or ABC rated extinguishers also can be used but use good ludgment so you won't get burned. Don't pour or spray water di- rectly into the chimney. This may cause rapid contraction and break flue tiles. Continue to check outer sur- face of the chimney and any inner walls near the chimney for exces- sive heat. Do this even after you think the fire is out. Check outside to see if sparks or embers' blown out of the chimney are igniting anything on the rcof or on the ground. After the fire, sweep the chim- ney and carefully check for damage, Also, resolve to clean your chimney morA nften uilters Wanted in River The Ronceverte Merchants' As- sociation is seeking volunteers to help with the creation of a "city quilt."
