Something left by the fireplace (5)
I believe the answer is:
'fireplace' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)
'something left by' is the wordplay.
'INGLE' is hidden within the letters.
But, I'm unsure how the hidden word is indicated.
'the' acts as a link.
Can you help me to learn more?
(Other definitions for ingle that I've seen before include "A fireside nook - get leg in" , "Type of fireplace" , "Fire - fireplace" , "Fireplace and Irish Times writer" , "warm part of house" .)
