Fireplace (5)

Ross

I think it could be either:

grate

ingle

'fireplace' is the definition.
(grate can mean a fireplace)

This is all the clue.

(Other definitions for grate that I've seen before include "Irritate - rasp - fireplace" , "Reduce to small shreds" , "Barred framework" , "Firebasket" , "Rasp; shred" .)

I've seen this clue in The Independent, the Sydney Morning Herald, the Evening Standard and The Guardian.
