While a fireplace has no specific function in Minecraft, it can add a nice touch to your home. Follow this guide to learn how to build a brick fireplace with a chimney in Minecraft.
You can find clay in veins along the bottom of shallow rivers, swamps or inside of mason houses (plains, savanna, and desert villages). You can break clay blocks with your hand, but using a shovel works best. Breaking clay blocks always drops 4 clay balls, regardless of Fortune.
Turn the clay into bricks. Add a clay ball and a fuel source, like coal or planks, to your furnace, to smelt the clay balls into bricks. Make sure you smelt the clay balls, and not the clay block. Smelting the clay block will give Hardened Clay/Terracotta which can”t be turned back to normal clay.
Craft the bricks. Brick items, need to be crafted into blocks first before they can be used to build with. To do this, place 4 bricks in a 2×2 square in your crafting menu. Bricks (the item not the block) can also be used to craft flower pots.
Trading with Villagers. Alternatively, you can trade emeralds for bricks with a Stone Mason villager instead of gathering the clay yourself. Stone Masons houses can naturally spawn as part of a village, but you can also convert an unemployed villager into a stone mason by placing a Stonecutter close to them. This method is recommended for large projects as less time is spent just looking for clay. For a smaller project like this you shouldn”t need to trade with too many villagers, but for a larger build, its a good idea to invest in a trading hall.
Line the hole with brick blocks. Place 2 netherrack in the floor holes and cover the rest of the fireplace 1 block deeper. If you want a fireplace escape route make the fireplace either 2x1x3 or 2x2x3 (these dimensions are: height x width x length/back) with a hallway that leads somewhere safe (like a hidden bunker) and a minecart behind where the flame will be.(it will work even if the fire is… flaming, but just in case dig a 1×1 hole in the hall and place a bucket of water)
You can”t. You have to use a furnace, because if you use the fireplace, you will burn yourself to death.
The railing is made of iron bars. If you don’t have access to that, you don’t even need a railing.
Nothing unless you want it to go out; netherrack burns continuously, while other blocks make the fire go out, or the fire burns down the block.
The only way you can is if the fire is surrounded by brick, including the nether rack. All the other parts of the house can be wooden.
The player who took the screenshots may have had the smoke particles turned off in order to make the game run faster.
If it burnt your house down, that means it was too close to burnable materials, such as wood. Try separating it from your house with iron bars or glass.
If you haven”t gotten access to netherrack yet, you can use a fireplace(s), which don”t burn down any wood around it and provide smoke as a beacon. You can craft a campfire out of 3 logs, 3 sticks, and 1 piece of coal.
Clay is not a flammable material; the only flammable materials are essentially anything made out of wood.
Add metal bars in front of the fire to avoid spreading, and you or any mobs in your base from accidentally walking into the fire.

Netherrack, Soul Soil, Bedrock (only in the End), and Magma Blocks will burn until you (the player) put them out. This only applies to the top of the block, not the sides or bottom.
If you don”t have netherrack, you can mine it in the Nether using a pickaxe, or find it in the overworld as part of Ruined Portals.
You can also use Magma Blocks which can be found around the overworld as part of Ruined Portals, Ocean Ruins, and in Ocean Ravines/Caverns.
In 1.16, the blue Soul Fire was added, which is a good alternative to use near flammable builds since it doesn”t spread to nearby blocks and also burns indefinitely.
If you have flammable blocks less than 4 blocks above the fire or above adjacent blocks, then those blocks will ignite, so make sure no flammable blocks are within this zone.
