I would probably use 'insaboard' (it is a insulating board with foil on one side and and a barrier plastic on the other). It is very common in bullding. You can buy at Home Depot or Lowes for less than $9/sheet (4x8 sheet). I have used it a lot and it is easy to work with.

Yes, if I was you, I would insulate. It certainly would not hurt. They do make a flame resistent insulation that is used around fireplaces and smoke stacks... but I doubt I would be too worried about that.
