Fireplace hearth weight
 
We moved into new house (brick ranch house) that has three wood burning fireplaces and I have access to a fireplace insert. I want to put the fireplace insert in one of the upstair fireplaces. I am concerned about the weight of the fireplace insert though. From the basement I have looked at the bottom of the the hearth which is all brick and has a concrete slope I guess to tie into the house brick.

Do you think that the brick hearth would support the weight of the fireplace insert?
