: I live in a 2 story colonial(built 1994) with a walkout basement effectively making it a 3 story. The original owner/builder put in a monster chimney with three flues. 1 for the 1st floor fireplace, 1 for the furnace and one for a possible woodsove in the basement.
++As you describe it, without knowing the materials the chimney is made of, having an individual flue for each appliance so none share a flue; all is correct.
What the effect of having one or more running at the same time upon the draft would depend on adequate entry of combustion air for all of them when they operate. At least a combustion air vent from the outside near the oil burner of adequate size would provide air for that appliance. Using a fireplace and another wood stove might require you to open windows or additional combustion air inlet vents near them to assure adequate air to prevent smoky backdrafts while also using them.
