To the building codes.
It is my understanding that firestopping is blocking installed from one stud to the next parallel to the floor about 1/2 way up inside the wall. It is supposed to stop fire from spreading upwards if it starts inside a wall.
I would call the building inspector and ask him what it is and if it is required in your situation. You don't have to give your name.
Good Luck!
