old coal fireplaces


I would like to use the old coal fireplaces in my house. Does anyone know how to tell if they are safe? Or where to buy coal for this use. I know nothing!

Before I would burn coal in them , I would call the local Chimney Sweep and get a inspection/cleaning done on the chimney/flues.

My first thought is why?
Where would you even store it?
When the last time you saw a place even selling it for home use?
