How to light a fire

You want to light a fire in your old wood house ? Here is the traditional method !

1. Put some news paper rolled in balls on the bottom of the fireplace.

2. Put some thin very dry brushwood over it, the more thick the wood is, the more you must put it on the top of the pile.

3. Now you can put your logs over it. You can put them horizontally or in a tipi shape, the most important is that air can circulate and that the logs are close enough from each other to keep the fire very warm.

4. Don't forget to open the flue door

5. Burn a paper sheet over the logs in order to begin aspiration from the flue.

5. Finally you can put fire on newspaper balls. Fire should start this way.
