Danger: Hot ashes

Fire pit ashes placed in a garage caused a fatal house fire. This scenario has and will play out, over and over again. Whether it be a paper bag, a plastic bag or a plastic trashcan, the ashes have a chance of causing a fire, even weeks after the last fire that you had in a fireplace, woodstove or fire pit.
