Do gas logs need a flute?

We recently bought a house that fireplace was converted to gas logs. It appears, looking up the chimney towards the roof that the chimney has been closed off and there is a 6 or 8" flexible pipe running up the chimney. We don't see a flute. Is this normal? Thanks Denise (mvdh3@optonline.net)
