Squires evidently include free-standing stoves and fireplace inserts - since you said "fireplace stove" I presume you mean an insert (inserted into the fireplace firebox).

For a free-standing one can commonlyi run from a maybe $300-500 to remove and to repair the hole in the wall for the flue pipe (assuming direct vented) - and maybe a few to quite a few hundred $ to repair the flooring if it was taken up when the stove was installed rather than just overlaid by a protective mat, depending on flooring materials. If it has been there a long time, usually the flooring will look funny even if it was left in place and undamaged, because of differential fading - as well as the almost inevitable burn marks and soot staining, so it is pretty rare to remove a wood stove and not have to do something to rehab the floor underneath - commonly a total replacement is done for that room.

For a true fireplace insert removal (which does NOT include in most cases returning the fireplace to normal use) here are som e previous similar questions with answers which should help - along with one or more about total fireplace and chimney removal if you end up with that solution:
