What does "v'Dishnu es ha'Mizbe'ach" mean?


Rashi: It means 'And they shall remove the ashes from the Mizbach ha'Nechoshes' (ha'Olah).


Why did the fire that descended from Heaven and burned permanently on the Mizbe'ach not burn the cover of purple wool with which they covered it?


Rashi: Because they placed an overturned pot on top of it 1 to protect it.


Presumably, the fire continued to burn, despite the lack of oxygen, because it was a heavenly fire, and was not therefore subject to the laws of nature.
