Now that our fire is going, we need to keep your eye on it and maintain it. If you want to have a fire that burns all night long, we are going to have to add firewood to it as we go. So I just want to add a piece of two at a time. You don't want your fire to get down so low that you perhaps would have to relight your and after this wood burns down this certain point, I may add 2, maybe 3 pieces of wood whatever. I am going to go ahead and open this up. Just be real careful because there could be many hot places on the fireplace itself like on the screen. It's not really hot yet but it could be so you might want to get your poker and that way you can move your logs around if you need to reorganize things. I am going to take an extra piece here and put on the fire real quick. Once again like I said earlier you want to arrange it where it locks the heat in so everything ignites real well. We should have a nice fire for hours to come.
