Toxic smell from fireplace
 
We moved into a 20 year old house with a regular brick fireplace. When we used it (we tired twice) it gave off a terrible toxic burnt crayon smell.
My husband thinks the previous ower painted the inside. What could be causing that awhful smell and how can we fix it?

Hire a legit chimney sweep company to have a look at your chimney.

Have a WETT certified chimney company inspect it.
