rusted fireplace / firebox

In reply to fixing a fireplace by stephen on January 19th, 2000 06:38 PM [Go to top of thread]

i recently purchased a house that has a fireplace. it had a steel firebox which was connected to 3 vents in the brick mantle(I think its called a heatalator). apparently, the cap on top of the chimney was not there for awhile because the back of the steel box was completely rusted away allowing smoke through the vents into the house. What is the best approach to fixing the fireplace? I am open to converting to gas or keeping it wood burning.
