What dimension lumber should I use to frame a 12-foot entry wall? This is an exterior wall. And do I need fire blocking?

2x6 lumber for the framing. Fire blocking is required at the level of a ceiling intersecting the wall. I hope this helps. Please let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using JA!
