Many will bring seriom loss because of poor construction Here are 10 ways to build more fire safety into a home. 1. The chimney should be lined throughout with fine tile, thc chimney top should extend at least 2' above the highest part of the roof and he screened to prevent the escape of sparks. 2. No wood .should touch a chimney; allow a 2" clearance and fill this space with naturally noli- combllstibte mineral wool. 3.

The Underwriters slammed the door moic than 2.000.000 times— thc equivalent of 410 years use in the average home but found it apparently not weakened m any way.
