TSP or Trisodium Phosphate is really good at getting soot and smoke off walls. Then, even tho' it's not cheap, I would get Rustoleum. Best paint you can buy. IMHO!

Years ago we did a fire rehab job. We tried the expensive soot removers. Totally Awesome from the dollar store worked better! Also call your local tool rental center and find an ozone generator. Car detailers and casinos use them all the time to kill odors. Be careful, though, because it will kill plants or pets. Get everything living out while in use. Finally, you cannot get the smell out of the wood. Use a lacquer paint to "seal the odors in". It is pricey, but it's the best way. Also, before you put up the sheetrock, put a few buckets of dehumidifier crystals in between the studs. Every layer of protection helps.
