Smoke chimneys are a type of fire that’s caused by chimneys that burn without oxygen, and a lot of fires in Canada, Australia and the United States have occurred without smoke chimney construction.

In this episode of The Globe and Mail’s Smoke Chimney Definition, host Erin McGinn and guest Erin McGovern discuss the history of smoke chimnets, how they’re built, and the best way to protect your home from smoke chimns.
