Colorado Man Burned While Cleaning Lit Fireplace

  • Photo
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado (AP) A Colorado Springs man who tried to clean his natural-gas fireplace while it was still lit nearly roasted himself over an open fire. He was hospitalized with second-degree burns.

Colorado Springs fire authorities say the unnamed man received facial burns Thursday night after using an aerosol cleaner on the lit fireplace. Fire Lt. Tom Ruane tells The (Colorado Springs) Gazette that the aerosol cleaner produced "a big fireball."

Three other people inside the house weren't injured.

Ruane says fireplace accidents are common, and that people trying to clean their own fireplaces should make certain the fireplaces are cool to the touch first. Aerosol cleaners shouldn't be used.
