    It's certainly not my personal preference (I prefer to drop chains and make sure the hot fuel, i.e. creosote that was burning, is cleaned (overhauled) out.)

    However, I could see it being an option in certain situations (i.e. can't reach top of chimney safely from aerial or ground ladders) where dropping chains isn't practical.
