    My wife was telling me about 2weeks ago she seen a chimney that was coated with tar and even the windows in the house looked black like stove glass. She commented that she thought it wouldn't be long before the house burnt down. Well about a week after she told me, the house burnt down and the cause was the wood stove. In the newspaper report, neighbors commented that they thought it was bad and thought it was a fire hazard. Some people just have no clue and soudn't own a stove.

    Pretty good example of why the crimp is supposed to be on the downside of the pipe connections. But that is indoors, not using stove pipe outdoors.

    Upside down stove pipe makes a fine chimbley. It's a metal building, what could go wrong! :/

    Nope. The cause was poor burning habits.
    Go to the source, not the symptom. I realize that was probably in the news report, but it's wrong.

    Only the operator of a stove can cause problems like these. Even the very best stove will pump creosote with an operator like this

    That pipe not only is upside down as already mentioned but looks to be about 3 inch pipe at the top. Maybe 4.....what a cobbled up mess. Stupid is as stupid does.

    I see that around here ALOT and I try to take a mental picture of where it is and 90 percent of the time a call comes across the scanner for a flue fire there. Don't people know you have to clean your chimney!!

    After watching this video, I reread the owner's manual for my stove. That is exactly what the manufacturer recommends. Page 13 reads, "In case of melting stove pipe, repel out of messy loft onto sketchy cantilever in sandals."

    I can't refer to my manual, 'cause I used most of it to start my fire in Sept.-, outside of that, I wear Croc's, not sandals.

    My bad, I actually watched the whole video. I thought it was metal building for some reason.

    What a goof ball! I noticed that the pipe had no rust and the stickers were still on it, that means that this "tar" built up in just a few days, black pipe will rust just sitting around the garage.
    It sounds like they are cutting next weeks wood supply in the back ground!
