RE: Question: Fire proof surface behind Blue Star (Follow-Up #8)

It's a safety issue, but in many places it's also a building code issue, so regardless of whether or not it's a *real* fire hazard (as opposed to a 'we don't want to be sued' issue) it's a good idea to get that fire-proof material there. We used a stainless steel backsplash as well, which we would have used regardless of the code issue. I wouldn't get the fireproof drywall because, if you live in an area like mine, you're just as likely to get a building inspector who won't accept the company's word that it's actually fireproof and refuse to okay your kitchen without tile or metal behind the stove. Granted, it wouldn't hurt to check either in case you really want just drywall.
