It would be nice if there would be a warning in case of making fire inside a building while not aiming at a fireplace.

Reason: I accidently burned a lot of resources stored in wooden bowls when I wanted to make a fire but accidentially did not aim on fireplace (whole stock of flours and herbs have been burned down).

So you didn't burn down the whole building? You're lucky ;)

And I fully agree it would be useful with a warning in that case.

Not too bad.

Usually end up splitting firewood on the firewood pile directly, which is adjacent to the fireplace. Then, distracted for any reason, start a fire on the firewood&block pile. Good bye cabin.  :-X

Yes, please. Indoor fire starting warning outside fireplace/sauna stove. Thank you!

Deja vu... I stopped stacking firewood next to my fireplace because of the same fears. Now my woodpile is outside and I have a small stack on the far side of my cabin, away from the fireplace. That's the first story I've heard confirming my caution.
