Hole from old fireplace

Hi everyone, we are in the process of renovating our apartment built roughly 1840. In our living room there used to be a fireplace which was removed by a previous owner. They left a very crude hole (pictured) covered with a plastic vented cover (also pictured). We would like to fill and cover this but before we do just wanted to check if it was left for a reason? Itís a double wall with quite a big gap between the walls. If filling is ok any advice on the best way to do so?

Thanks in advance!
