Never worry about hauling wood, messy ashes or flying embers again! The Sierra Outdoor fireplace burns safe and environmentally friendly Real Flame gel fuel. Real Flame gel fuel creates a robust red, yellow-orange fire that crackles just like a real fire but without the mess or hassle. It's perfect for your deck, patio, porch, balcony, gazebo or covered arbor. These fireplaces are ideal for anywhere log fires are restricted, such as apartment or condo balconies.
