The older we get, the more items we acquire such as important documents, valuables, and family heirlooms. Many times, these items are just put under a bed, in a closet, or on a shelf somewhere. A fire can be a real threat to these items if they are not protected. Just recently my grandmother had a fire-safe installed in her home. Most of the very important documents that she was going to store in the safe were being stored in a cardboard box!
