A chimney is a device or a system used for emitting flue gases and smoke to escape from the house or industry so that it doesn't surround the nearby area and increase pollution which in turn would lead to a lot of health hazards. The usual height of a chimney should abide by the 10ft-2ft rule which would suffice under usual conditions. But there are always exceptions to the rule.

The height of a chimney has to be more than the standard height for wood and coal burners as a safety measure against chimney fires and several other reasons. It should extend to at least 3 feet above the roof surface that it penetrates and should be at least 2 feet higher than any roofline or other hindrances within a horizontal distance of 10feet.
