Fire Pit on slate

Can you build a fire pit on slate? The house we bought has a 6x6 area of slate in the back yard. My guess is it was used to display a statue of some kind since there are cinder blocks around it. But it's the only real spot for a fire pit. Can I turn this into a fire pit (build the fire pit on top of the slate)? Or do I need to remove the slate?
Thanks in advance!

I'd cover the bottom with fire brick.
