    This is out of a Kingsman Vent free logs set manual:
    WARNING
    Before installing in a solid fuel burning fireplace, the
    chimney flue and firebox must be cleaned of soot,
    creosote, ashes, and loose paint by a qualified chimney
    cleaner. Creosote may ignite when heated to a high
    temperature. Have chimney flue inspected for damage.
    If flue system is damaged, you may close the damper if
    using as a vent-free system. If you are using the burner
    as a vented burner and the flue system is damaged, do
    not install the unit.


    Check the manual of the vent free log set and verify if there are any other requirements from the Manufacture.

    Cool NFPA 211

    Would require a Level II inspection. It'd a lot more than just the flue....
