Are all fireplaces suitable for coal/solid fuel fires?

The majority of all fireplaces are suitable for multi fuel open fires, however the hearth of the fireplace must have three expansion joints at the fire opening, which allows for the material to expand under high temperatures. If there are no joints in place the heat could put pressure on the hearth causing it to crack. Hearths with no expansion joints are only suitable for Gas / Electric fires and stoves.
