May you burn incense sticks in fireplace?
May all beings be free from suffering and causes of suffering

You mean the wood end, right?
Why not?
At temples they throw them into the joss paper burner. We dont have one at the house now and so we just throw them away in the trash. I felt bad about it at first before my wife said not to and that the wood end is not what we are offering, comparing it to feeling a need to burn the peel of oranges that have been offered, I have never heard of anyone doing that, have you?
