Insulation touching fireplace flue

Recommended Posts

Is fiberglass insulation combustible? Should it be pulled away from this fireplace flue? It has been like this since 1983, but since I’m not sure, I think I’ll recommend it be pulled away. I have seen in newer construction a warning label on metal furnace flues indicating insulation should not touch. What say you?
