if you have a masonry flue and fireplace with a damper can you convert or use the same fireplace for gas and wood? Suppose you have a gas line capped off at the side of the fireplace, this would have to be removed before you could put wood in it? Even if the gas was not supplied? Are there any different requirements for flue size when using wood vs gas? :confused:

Sounds like you found a masonry wood burning fireplace with provisions for a gas log lighter. Its only purpose is to light the logs, not be a gas fireplace.
