Linking Into Gas Fireplace for Echo-driven Crackling Sounds?

I just had a gas fireplace installed and have no interest in turning it on or off via voice for safety reasons, but would like to find out if I can somehow get access to the status of the fireplace so that I can trigger an Echo Dot to play crackling sounds when it’s turned on. Sure, I can manually do this but would like to automate it. I notice my IntelliFire control has an Aux 2 that moves between On/Off and there should be other ways to trap when it’s on and off.

Has anyone gone down this path before?
