If you're that worried about a fire, I believe I'd buy a cheap safe and keep them in there. I realize nitrate film is much like guncotton, but it's not nitroglycerine. Of course everybody is the measurer of his own safety. At the same time we do live now in a society of alarmists. I guess my point is, if you don't extract the highest possible image off these films now, once they're burned you won't get a do-over. GL
