The National Fire Protection Association publishes the distance required from combustibles. You can box out the hung ceiling around the flue with at least six inches spacing from the outside of the flue to the hung ceiling surfaces. The existing ceiling should have the firebreak sheetmetal to prevent fire from passing through the ceiling to the next floor.
