I have a gas log fireplace. It is seldom used because it is just a waste of gas and gives off little heat.
Anyway, It is nice for ambience and I have an ambience situation coming up.
I went to fire it up last night and she would not fire up. It has a standing pilot light and a wall switch to turn it on or off. The pilot light is burning just fine.
