Q: Fireblocking around a brick chimney

We are adding a room & bathroom to the rear of a house. In the middle of where we tied into the existing house is the back & sides of the brick fireplace/chimney...which now is enclosed under the new roof. We plan on sheetrocking around the brick fireplace/chimney. Can the framing butt right up against the brick or is a 2" gap required between the framing & brick?
