As temperatures are starting to go down, families are starting to light up their fire places.
Because of increasing electric bills, more people are expected to use their fire places and
that concerns local fire officials.
They say many families will use their fireplaces without having them serviced first and that means there's a possibility that smoke or fire may backfire into a home.
Fire officials say it's best to look for a licensed chimney sweep in your area to make sure they are up to date on all fire codes.
