Pianting Brick Fireplace

I would like to paint the face of my 30+ year old gas fireplace face white. The bricks are the smooth kind w/fairly smooth grout lines. I am a little concerned about the heat and how it effects the paint. What kind of paint is best... latex, oil based, something else?

This may be a question for the "Paint" forum, but I thought some of you may have something to say about it.

Do you know how hot the bricks get? I have painted steam radiators successfully, and they get pretty hot.

There is also a high temp paint on the market, but I think its made for BBQ pits. I'll have to look into it.
