replacing woodburning stove with fireplace

Hi. We have a woodburning stove sitting on a 4'x3' layered brick slab and we want to put in a gas fireplace. I am wondering if we can put the fireplace on top of this brick or if we should remove the brick and put it on a base. I would prefer to put in on the brick as it would be a lot of work to remove the brick. It is about 5 or 6 inches off the floor. Thank you for any info.

You can install a zero-clearance fireplace right on the existing brick.
These are made to be safely installed against wood framing.
Check into them (woodburning or gaslogs) at fireplace stores, Sears, etc.
Good luck!

Thank you for replying. We are not sure it would look good sitting on the brick. We will have a lot of extra space in front of it. It still would probably be better than taking the brick out. Thanks again.
