Aloha! Keauhou locals love a good open fire at night. In recent years, ethanol-burning portable fireplaces have become more popular. However, the fuel, device, and open flame can be dangerous. SERVPRO® of Hawaii |SERVPRO® of Maui offers these ethanol-burning fireplace safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association:

Fireplace Safety

  • A portable ethanol burning fireplace, and the fuel, should only be used by adults
  • Clean up any fuel spillage and be sure all liquid has evaporated before lighting the fireplace
  • Light the fireplace using a utility lighter or long match
  • An adult should always be present when a portable fireplace is burning
  • Place the fireplace on a sturdy surface away from table edges
  • It’s a good idea to crack a window open for a fresh supply of air
  • Never try to move a lit fireplace or one that is still hot
  • Don’t pour ethanol fuel in a device that is lit or not completely cool. It may result in a fire or injury.
  • Allow the device to cool down for at least 15 minutes before refueling
  • Extinguish the flame when you leave the room, home, or go to sleep
