Or buy real paint at a paint store! Just bid another job to undo a BEHR interior paint disaster.

Whatever you use, you will have to get as much soot and so forth off as you can. You should probably prime over it first with a sealer/primer like BIN. You will also want to use a very thick---1 or even 1.5 inch nap---roller cover and chase your work with a brush.

If they are in fact white, not painted, bricks your approach will be to clean them only.
