Can you put a fireplace in a hyper sealed plastic wrapped A rated home?

I want to build a rocket stove, thermal mass couch in my new passive solar home. if I have A hyper sealed, plastic wrapped A rated home and a fireplace or even an exhaust fan. Then isn't it the case that they will not suck air out as there is no air to replace it, and won't a fire place be a risk to your health for example carbon monoxide poisoning or simply lack of air. will your fireplace even start?

Thank you Mike. Even though a fireplace is unnecssary I think ill put one in with a direct airpipe especially as rockets burn evn more efficiently with injected air. About your work, I have been following your work in helping humanity and updates for years Im especially happy to see the straight windows but as i love the slanted look and to prevent overheating, especially when plants are low, have you considered external retractable awnings. Be well
