Garage Fire wall

I just inspected a home with an attached garage. The common wall and ceiling are 5/8 fire rated drywall; there is no living space above the garage. Question: does the common wall still have to go all the way to the rafters? It is currently open above the ceiling line. Thanks, Mike
