    Short answer - NO.

    Longer answer - only if the fireplace was originally a wood burning which was converted with gas logs. Then the logs can be removed and it converted back to wood.

    There should be a label on the fireplace - open where the gas valve is...

    Basically, if you have an area underneath the fireplace with a gas valve and other stuff in it - it's a gas fireplace!

    If it was converted, the valve is more likely to be in the inside of the fireplace.

    Also, what is the vent situation? If it goes up through the roof or a frame structure, then check the size of the pipe - that will tell you a lot.
