    We had a fire proof lock box also but the temp of the fire was so intense everything inside of it was still destroyed.

    Well you need a fire proof safe that is rated at a minimum of 1 hour. Most good one swill be rated for 1 hour at 1850 deg. F. Paper will ignite at 350 deg F. So the better the rating the better protection you will have against things burning up inside. @kazzy220

    I'm not sure how hot our fire was but the firemen said it was the hottest that they had ever felt.

    @jen74401 The average house fire is around 800 to 900 deg. but can reach well over 1200 deg. F. That's why a fire safe rated for an hour or two is better.

    I have also been told that if you do not have a fire proof box/safe, then your freezer is the next best place to keep your important document in, as this is the last place in a house fire to be consumed by heat and fire. I just put them in a freezer bag out of the way and they do just fine.

    Maybe that was the issue. The firemen that showed up here just sat in my driveway eating ice cream sandwiches and gatorade

    @jen74401 WHAT?????? That wasn't a fireman, he was a spectator, and should turn in his gear. We always do something to try to put the fire out no matter what the condition is or how much fire there is. If we can save some property maybe even just a picture album or trinket that may just be the one thing that means the most to someone. I hate it when I see videos of so called fireman just watching a fire and not doing their job.

    No joke, all of the firemen just sat there and enjoyed their ice cream while I lost everything. To top it off, after they left our house they left their trash all over my yard.
