There is a removable metal plate at the bottom of my brick fireplace, located directly under the grate which holds the wood. What is its purpose?

Our Answer:

This is likely an ash dump drawer into which you can sweep ashes from the fireplace. The ashes should then be cleaned from the outside of the home through an access door (usually located on the exterior of the masonry chimney.)
