How hot can a flue pipe get?

The typical cause of a chimney fire is the combustion of creosote inside the chimney. There are many ways to combat or prevent this, and one of them is to keep the flue warmer than 250 degrees Fahrenheit. Temperatures above this point are too hot for creosote to condense on the surface of the chimney flue.

Also know, what temperature is too hot for a wood stove?

Recommended wood stove temperature range is between 110 to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. It's important to note that today's stoves allow for efficient controlling of airflow. By controlling how much air gets in, you dictate how slowly the wood burns. Burn wood too quickly and you're wasting heat.
