The fireplace is on an interior wall. I want to remove it from the kitchen wall and build a pantry in the kitchen using the space where the fireplace was. Is this possible?

Depends - contractor or architect (if using an architect for the remodel design) would have to look at it and probably pull away the facing trim. If a metal fireplace maybe so - if brick or stone likely not. And of course, whether wall is load-bearing or not matters a lot.

And of course, if stone or brick, you have the chimney to take care of too, so a general contractor would have to repair holes in that wall and the ceiling and the roof as well.
