Depends on AHJ.
Call and ask them. Let your fingers do the walking.
I'm sure they would answer your ?.

When there is a fire and major repairs, renovation, remodeling, etc., is involved, it is always important to check with the local government on what permit(s) are required. I would go to the city's website or call the local bldg. dept.

It would hurt if you started the work unpermitted then have to rip out and start over due to codes not being followed or inspection. Once walls are open due to fire or water damage, the bldg. dept. will want to check electrical before you put the walls (or ceilings) back up.

Good Luck.

A GC would know what needs permits and what doesn't.
