Stove in the Sistine Chapel

STOVE IN THE SISTINE CHAPEL
The Vatican on Saturday installed a special stove and chimney in the Sistine Chapel from which white smoke will signal the election of a new pope as cardinals prepare for the historic vote next week. 

The conclave of 115 "cardinal electors" will begin on Tuesday under Michelangelo's famous frescoes to choose the 266th pope.
