Smoke from wood stoves and fireplaces can
make you sick. Smoke has tiny particles that can get in your
lungs. People that cough and wheeze should stay away
from wood smoke. Our old stove used to smoke a lot. When my sister was born, we got a new wood
stove. I like having a warm fire that’s not smoky. To help protect your health and the health
