The Yellowknife Fire Department has also given out some safety tips for residents to keep an eye on their chimneys. Remove the ice build-up on your chimney to ensure it doesn’t collapse the chimney liner. With temperatures of -30C and colder, ice builds up quickly. If your chimney liner is damaged, carbon monoxide will invade your home.

Residents are encouraged to try and remove ice from their chimneys before it has a chance to build up, make sure a carbon monoxide detector is installed inside the home, and you have your furnace or boiler serviced, have them check your chimney liner to ensure there is no damage.
