I also wanted to add that I really contemplated hard on doing a one inch overhang on the flagstone and adding three step lights under the lip or overhang similar to what I did on the exposed walls on the beach.

I would have then had to run conduit through the center void and fill concrete around that to hide the wire.

Even with the fire-brick in the center, I didn't feel confident that there would have been enough heat protection to keep the wire from melting. And, all it would take is one big raging log, or a little brush that spills over the top, burns on the ground and thus scorching the lights.
