It's three flames are fueled by three 15 oz. fuel containers that burn bioethanol, a natural fuel derived from renewable crops like corn and sugar cane. The soot-free burn of this fuel puts the focus where it should be -- on the beauty of the flames and the warmth they generate.

Oh, and there's a bonus: for a limited time, you'll receive a 30% deduction from your final tax bill on this fireplace thanks to a Federal tax credit for appliances that burn biofuels.
