Hello All, My house (1978) has a masonry wood burning fireplace. There is a keyed gas valve about 1 foot away from the Firebox, which i assumed was for a gas log starter. I would like to install either a gas insert or gas logs into the fireplace but i cannot find the gas line from the gas valve. There is no evidence of there ever being a gas pipe to the firebox, but it seams to me unreasonable that it would have been built with a gas valve and no gas pipe, And then Masonry Sealing it in. Anybody else ever deal with something similar? Any Ideas?

That is identical to the gas valve for my fireplace!
In California these are required for gas fireplace which is not required in Illinois where I lived before.
Both these have/had artifical logs!

In your case it looks like the job, gas conection, was not finished!
