Yes it is possible. Where do you have the fan that is blowing toward other rooms? On the floor?
If so what you might have done was disrupt the natural convection of the hot air. If your fan is on the floor you are blowing cool air out of that room and with the hot air up toward the ceiling it is blocking any air from coming into that room. You may want to try a fan up higher blowing out of the stove room or a fan on the floor blowing into the stove room. You need to send hot air (up high) away from the stove or cold air (down low) toward the stove. Or a combo of both.
