Most of our homes are equipped with either a gas or wood burning fireplace(s).  In homes having a wood burning fireplace(s), wood is furnished during the months of October through April.  Kindling and/or fire starter logs are not provided.  Due to lack of storage, wood is not furnished for condominiums and it is recommended that only compressed wax logs be used. Be certain the flue is open on all wood burning units prior to starting a fire. Keep spark screens in place at all times. Gas fireplaces will not be operational during the months of May through September.  No foreign materials are to be burned in gas fireplaces. For your safety, never move the logs in the gas fireplace. Doing so can cause carbon monoxide and heavy black soot.
