What if all the bricks not in the wood burner stove?

The bricks are fire bricks that isolate the flame from the surrounding metal of the stove. Missing bricks will cause hot spots in the firebox. Over time the excessive heat will start to break down the metal and may eventually lead to a burn through. This will render your wood stove unusable as combustion air will be drawn in through the hole. This will lead to no control over the flame as there is now by using the control damper.
