Gas Fireplace Codes

I want to build a mantel and surround around my gas fireplace. I know that there are codes that regulate that the surround must be x inches away from the fireplace on the sides, and x inches (with mantel) away from the top of the fireplace.

However, I do not know if the codes are the same for gas fireplaces. I have been trying to find information, but don't know where to look. Can anybody enlighten me?

I live in Washington State, if it makes a difference for the code.

You might want to contact the manufacturer of your gas stove for recommended clearances if they are not posted in your owner's manual.
