What Are Firelogs
Created to replace the traditional wood fireplace log, firelogs are manufactured by compressing sawdust into a log.
There are two types of firelog. One is comprised solely of compressed sawdust and the other is made up of sawdust which is blended with paraffin and mechanically extruded into logs. Both types of firelog are manufactured for ease of lighting.
