woody smelling basement - no fire lit

15 years ago

Any help would be appreciated -- my basement has been smelling like a wood fire on and off all season. It has been persistently that way the last few days (we've had some warmer temps but it's snowing again today).

We do have a fireplace, but have not used it all winter. It is directly above the basement. The house hasn't smelled funny until today.

The basement is dry as far as I can see. Do you think this is negative pressure even if there's been no fire lit?
