Chimney Fire Safety Week is back another year and this year Ventro is proud to be supporting it. Follow us this week as we help raise awareness of chimney fires and encourage consumers to take action. Focusing on the importance of chimney sweeping, maintenance and quality of fuel usage.
Awareness and Action

You may think that Chimney Fires aren’t a regular occurrence, however there are still 3,105 chimney fires in England each year.
