67. If you are using your fireplace for heat...

make sure to have it cleaned of the creosote that builds up over time.
It becomes a fire hazard when not cleaned regularly.

I've lived thru several power outages living on the outskirts on Seattle. One
lasted 10 days. We've had two chimney fires in our neighborhood over the
last few years due to this problem. Thankfully no one was hurt, but both homes
had to be rebuilt.
