Vertically in the same area ( between the studs), not much of a problem
depending on the age of the construction. Newer homes may have fire blocking
at 4 or 8 feet.
Side to side past a stud, your going to need access from above or below to
accomplish this one.
Long drill bit extensions can do wonders on fire blocking. I once went
6 feet with extensions. Just dont do what I did the first time I used
an extension. I started in the attic, went in crooked and came thru
the siding outside. Luckily it was wood siding so a piece of dowel
and some wood glue fixed it, followed by sanding and painting.
