This is our Fireplace and Mantle. As you can see from the darkened area above the fire, previous owners have allowed the fire to escape from the firebox. For this reason this fireplace if mostly for decorative purposes. The flu is locked shut.
This fireplace can be used only if the flu is opened by someone who is an very experienced with making fires in a limited space firebox.
To all you would be pyromanics, please use the outside fire ring! Thanks.
