draft is near zero.As suggested, open the ash pan door. You might need something to stimulate your draft like burning some news paper or card board on top the coal bed. If you have any red glowing down thru the grates, You should be able to save her.
very good lightning... it sounds he is on the verge of loosing her... establish draft above, open bottom door below and keep your fingers crossed.
Lightning's got this down pat... his advise is very good and the only hope at this point. the reason BTW its only in the center is that big square football field (inside joke) buts whats called "dead spots", but neither here or their.... stuff newspaper up the flu pipe and light it (can you get to flu pipe or is hopper in way?)... open bottom door, not disturb the firebed at this point until you start this artificial resuscitation (I will say though on a big square box its going to be time consuming to obtain an even firebed again even if you save her
On your stove I might opt to let her go out and start new.
