    Position of the logs is critical. Incorrect position can cause flame impingement and generate soot. It can cause other issues, too. Since your fireplace is used, I suggest finding the manufacturer's literature and verify the log positions.

    There = not here. Their = possessive pronoun. They're = they are
    It's = contraction of it is. Its = the possessive form of it
    Too = also. To = expressing motion. Two = 2
    Then = after that, next. Than = indicates a comparison.

    In addition to the impingement possibly creating high levels of Carbon Monoxide....

    Improper log placement can also cause the burner to overheat and crack and deform. If the pilot is blowing out you may need to take a look at the venting it might need a wind cap or it could be as simple as just adjusting the pilot a bit.
