Masonry vs. Prefabricated
There are two basic types of fireplaces: masonry and prefabricated. Masonry fireplaces are built into the house as the house is being built. They are made of stone or brick. Prefabricated fireplaces are prefabricated in a factory then sent to and installed in a house. These fireplaces have a metal firebox, which is sometimes covered by refractory panels made to look like brick. A quick rap on the firebox will tell you if it's made of stone (and is a masonry fireplace) or made of metal (and is a prefabricated fireplace). Take a look at this video for more information.
