Change the fireplace wall to no room definition.  Also set your wall elevation to ignore railings.

My guess is that your fireplace is not in the same room as your wall elevation camera.  Wall elevations are for a single room only and will exclude objects that are not in that room.

 

You would need to post a plan for anyone to know for sure.

 

You could either use a cross section camera (because these will use the whole model), or change your room definition so that the fireplace is actually in the room (but this can have other side effects), or modify the fireplace so that it is in the same room as the camera.

When Chief does a wall elevation, and you have an opening, like a door or window, with a symbol within it, it decides if it should show the symbol by looking at the symbols (bounding box) position.

 

If the symbol is centered on the wall, or more than halfway outside the room, it does not show. 

 

The symbol (bounding box) must be more than half way into the room for it to show.

 

Here is a simple plan showing what Ryan suggested above.

And for best responses, at a minimum, post a couple of screen captures. You have been using Chief long enough to know the answers are almost always, "it depends".
