This was in the throat of a masonry fireplace. Apparently, they forgot to remove them after construction. . .

Jeff, is that wood below the steel plate also?

Was this one of your inspections?

Below the steel plate was the opening of the fireplace (you see the chain mesh). This was an open - two sides open - fire place and the shake was used to support the brick work during construction.
