WOOD-BURNING stoves provide two kinds of heat: radiated and conducted. Both contribute to the warmth and well-being you get from a fire, but both carry the potential hazard of overheating, even setting ablaze, anything that gets too close for too long.Radiated heat comes through the air -- it's what makes your face glow when you sit near the stove. Conducted heat is more direct -- the warmth the stove transfers to the surface it is sitting on, for instance.Radiated heat can become conducted heat if it warms a nearby surface -- say, an ordinary wall -- and conveys heat to whatever is behind the surface -- in the case of the wall, to the studs behind the drywall.

Investigators have determined that a three-alarm fire Tuesday in an Owings Mills townhouse complex was sparked by an unattended stove. Damage from the fire, which spread to a dozen other townhouses, was estimated at more than $1 million. The fire at 15 Old Coach Lane, which was reported about 2 p.m., prompted a response by about 80 firefighters with some 40 fire engines, ladder trucks and other equipment. "The fire required additional units so that crews could rotate on a regular basis and find relief from the heat," a statement from the Baltimore County Fire Department said Wednesday.

Q. Is my black-painted potbelly stove purchased several years ago at a flea market valuable? It's 57 inches high and 27 inches wide, and was made by Southard, Robertson Co.A. Your freshly painted wood- or coal-burning parlor stove was made around 1910 in Peekskill, N.Y. A dealer likely would pay about $150 for it in its present condition, said vintage stove restorer and dealer David Erickson, of Erickson's Antique Stoves, 2 Taylor St., Littleton, Mass. 01460, (508) 486-3589. The two skirts around its middle, ring at the top, and finial on the cover originally were nickel-plated.

Scouts used several methods to do their cooking, including campfire, backpack stove, kitchen oven and slow cooker.

With more freezing weather on the way, I offer an 18-step plan for staying warm and sufficiently fed, making optimum use of the stove for heating and for creating enough meals for the remainder of the week. This is what humans have desired since the Middle Paleolithic period: fire, warmth, cooked proteins and vegetables, resulting in comfort food and comfortable domicile. It's all in my plan. Not only will several hours of early-morning cooking compensate for the inadequacies of your home-heating system; you'll get a good workout, an exercise in multitasking and a warm glow all over For this, you need to have: a whole chicken, a pound of Italian sausage, potatoes, yellow onions, flour, vegetable oil, olive oil, yeast, celery, two large cans of tomato sauce, a dozen eggs, butter, milk, garlic, rice, penne pasta, carrots and the basic seasonings that can be found in most kitchens.

How much is a good closer worth? Well, the Orioles believe $6.5 million. That's what Jim Johnson will receive for 2013 after notching a league-leading and franchise best 51 saves last year. Who knows if the 29-year-old Johnson will be able to repeat his tremendous performance this season? It certainly won't be easy. And there are a whole lot of people out there that think big money for a closer is a waste given the volatility of the position and the success achieved by non-closers when thrust into the role.

Perhaps I am exaggerating a tad, but it seems like every time another club makes a personnel move, I get an email or a tweet from an Orioles fan wondering if it could affect the Orioles. If a player is rumored to be on the trade block or gets non-tendered or is designated for assignment, fans want to know if the Orioles have interest. Truth is, the Orioles front office hears the same rumors and views the same transaction info as you do. And they vet pretty much every option. And they have interest, to varying extents, on most players.

For years, Maryland has been giving generous rebates to families to install solar photovoltaic panels, geothermal systems and wind turbines. That's great, as far as it goes, but the rebates typically go to Maryland's wealthiest residents. Finally, Maryland has included the little guy of the renewable-energy world: wood and pellet stoves. The Maryland Energy Administration has just started the Clean Burning Wood Stove Grant Program, which could ultimately help thousands of rural Marylanders get a new stove or upgrade from their older, polluting stoves.

There's a primal wonder to smoked food — that such depth of flavor can come from so simple a technique. And then, of course, there's the lure of the sunny afternoon spent in a lawn chair with a cold beer while you're waiting, patiently, for the Weber to work its magic. But what if it starts raining? The audacity of the weather! Of course, not all smoking needs to be done outdoors. Find a large roasting pan. Grab a cooling rack, some heavy foil and a baking tin for a makeshift drip container.

I am not very fond of camping. And I am not very good at the principal requirements of camping: not bathing for several days, finding my way to the bathroom in the dark, cooking over an open flame and sleeping on the ground. But if you ever go camping, you might want to have me with you. What I am missing in fire-starting, I make up for in list-writing. Go camping with me, and you will never be without something you need. My husband's brother, Dan, and his young family love camping, and they began to invite us empty-nesters a few years ago. Not wishing to betray our age or our sedentary lifestyle, we agreed with weak smiles.
