The bricks surrounding my fireplace have cracks between them. It's as if the thermal expansion/contraction has eroded the mortor between the bricks. I have had some serious fires in there and haven't had a problem but I am worried that the lack of grout may be a fire hazard. Is there a grout or mortor than I can force into the cracks?
