Ideas for removal of in-floor furnace

Just bought an old house with old in floor furnace that I would like to remove. It has central heat now. This house sits on piers and the space where the furnace is, is about 4 feet deep. I am wondering about once i remove it. Do I fill the hole with anything? There appears to be water at the bottom. Can I frame the "hole" and have the current metal grate sit on that?

Floor Furnace

If there is water down there, you need to find out why & what you can do about it. Water under a house is not good & can lead to mold issues.
As to the removal of the furnace: Pull it out, frame in the cut out, & install flooring over the frame with insulation under the patch.
