Convert gas insert back to wood burning fireplace

I have a factory wood burning fireplace insert that was converted to gas several years ago. I would like to remove the gas logs and burn wood as before. Is it safe to just remove the logs and cap the the threaded steel pipe that penetrates into the firebox? I have already removed the propane tank from the other end.
