Dear Barry: We have a gas log fireplace in our home and would like to have real wood fires. Would it be safe to remove the gas logs and burn real logs instead? --Dave

Dear Dave: Before making changes to your fireplace, you should determine the type of fixture that you have, as well as its internal condition.

If it was originally built as a wood-burning fireplace and then converted to a gas log setup, it may be possible to return to solid-fuel use.
