What is the temperature of a fireplace?

That will depend on the fuel being burned, the draft fanning the fire, and WHERE in the fireplace you measure the temperature. Parts of the firebox can reach temperatures of around 1500 degrees F when burning dry hardwood under draft- coal can be hotter still.
