Hidden Bricks, Health Issues?

We tore out our home's interior chimney and now have about a hundred Hidden (Vancouver, Wa) bricks that we would like to build a firepit out of in our yard. I'm wondering if there are any potential health concerns with using these bricks for a fire pit? Do you know the materials used for making the Hidden bricks? Could there be asbestos in them?

  1. Asbestos was never used in brick making anywhere, in the U.S. or the rest of the world. You may have confused the issue with asbestos in wall plaster, a process that started in 1920, but not in the metro Portland area until a decade later.
