    Welcome Sheila. It's been a while but if I remember right the bricks only go up part way, maybe about 10" or so? They are hard to get so be gentle when loading wood.

    If the tops of the bricks are all level with each other and there are no serious cracks or hole in them, then you are probably ok. Post a picture of what you are seeing we may be able to tell their condition better.

    Here is how to post pictures: http://www.hearth.com/talk/threads/putting-images-into-your-forums-posts.87212/
