Levers on side of fireplace

pantalaOctober 12, 2009


I was wondering if anybody could help identify what these levers on the side of my fireplace are for. There is one on each side. At first I thought it might be a fresh air intake control but this fireplace is located in an island in the middle of the room so I don't think there is any access to outside air.

The levers pull out and then fold down. See pics below.

Lever out:


Lever in:


I appreciate any insight!
