    Default Here and preposition

    I see that before "here" sometime we use preposition, sometime we don't. Example:

    I am here
    It is very hot in here.

    Could we say: I am in here? or It is very hot here? Could you please tell me when "in" is needed?

    Thank you.

    I suppose it is used to purely emphasise an adverbial modifier of place. You can say: It lies there. Or: It lies in there! (open your eyes, look harder!)

    All the best,
