*Chimneys supporting gas and/or oil heating appliances can become blocked and cause flue gasses to be backed up into the living space. Flue gasses are hazardous to occupants and can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning. DOB strongly recommends that building owners perform annual inspections of the clean out at the base of chimneys that support fuel-fired heating appliances.
