This month the City of Nedlands will vote to ban fireplaces.

In an attempt to reduce the toxic fumes, there is also a push for the government to fund indoor wood heater replacement programs. So Jeziel wanted to know, do you think fireplaces should be banned?

Marilyn thinks they should be banned. “We need to save the trees. There is pollution in the air come wintertime. I’ve also heard of houses that burned down because of an ember that fell onto a carpet.” Kelly has had a fireplace for years. “It’s the best form of heating for the house.”

“So are they going to remove them from the heritage buildings?”

“Absolutely! They cause so much pollution.”
