    It is generally not the house, but the added furnishings that fuel the fire and release toxic agents while burning.

    Sure, as long as the materials that you use meet industry standards of safety.

    thanks
    Fire suppression for the server room as currently designed use an IG55 type system, code guys are having problems because for the suppression to work properly the room has to be flooded and sealed. There's only one exit. IG55 is an argon or nitrogen flood type system that essential evacuates the existing air out of the room and replaces it with inert gas. We were also looking at using ACP (Aluminum Composite) panels as a fire resistant upgrade to the wall and ceiling paneling as they are very light weight and have good thermal properties, which for code purposes is in a very grey area. Another words they don't fricken know. My electrical system is an electricians nightmare. I have had trouble with the code people over it. I have solar panels, solar thermal, wind generation, and battery banks and very sophisticated inverter system. Lots of wires and accessories everywhere. Oh did I mention the cisterns, lordy you would not believe the bs you have to go though to have one of those.

    No. The contaminants in meat get there during the butchering process and are on the surface of a steak. Cooking takes care of that.

    But with chopped meat, the surface has been ground up and mixed in thoughout the chopped meat, so the entire batch of meat must be cooked to ensure that the harmful bacteria have been killed.

    Esp. in a place like CA where they have extreme fire danger and many homes close together. They have alot of regulations on caring for their property to minimize fire danger too.
