Thankfully my friend has recovered enough to take over his heating again. My coat is washed and my house no longer smells of smoke. All the best to the wood burners out there they have to be a hardy bunch!!

If Smitty were to burn tires in Massachusetts, he would have swat teams rapelling from helicopters on his house.
