Greetings Colleagues:

A family member contacted me recently because upon moving into a new home, discovered he had, according to his calculations, approximately 275-375 liters of whiskey and similar spirits in his basement. Its not stored in anything special, just normal wood cabinetry.  He is was reaching out to see if he needs to have that amount in any kind of proper flammable storage containers. Thoughts? 

Thanks in advance,

Joe Bennett-Paris, Ph.D.
