Dry wentlier means more fires. Properly owners can
help reduce the fire loss by carefully cleaning up trash
accumulations around buildings, or in garrets and un
used rooms, also w iring up loose stove pipes. The great
est danger of all is worn out and mossy roofs, which
cause over half of all fires.
