Gap in concrete/fireplace foundation


I noticed a gap in my concrete foundation where it meets with the brick/mortar of my wood burning fireplace. I have not used this fireplace since we have moved in (1 year ago) and wanted to fill in the gap (MAX 1/4") to ensure that nothing gets down there. I was not sure if I should use concrete caulk or something else. This is what I was thinking from DAP.

I just want to be sure it will last (our house is settled) and it will withstand the high heat if we make a fire and then the cold when the fire is not lit.

Thanks!

I am located in the DC Metro Area

Here are the pictures, you can see this is where the hearth meets the front of the fireplace.

if it were ours, i'd just vac out the debris, get a tube of conc repr mix at the apron/vest store, & fill it slightly below the top,,, my bride, nagzilla, would be thrilled she didn't have to ask me over & OVER to fix it
