possibly  same as MarioP  but if fire  was slow spreading I would grab my 3 voice serenellini DG that has served me well for over 20 years  and my hohner gaelic BCC# cos it plays in 12 keys  ( for the learning of 5!)  and has my favourite 'wet' tuning.  If fire still slow spreading I might add  my battered DG pokerwork 'cos it brings back happy memories of my days as a morris musician.


Perhaps it would be better to keep ones boxes in a damproof and fireproof shed so it won't matter if the house burns down.

The clear way forward must be for us all to construct fire-resistant panic/strong rooms to avoid the problem. An expensive option but imagine the trauma of leaving a melodeon behind to a fiery demise. You'd be racked with guilt forever!

With thick enough fire / damp proof walls and those on reduced decibels due to family or neighbours could find a full volume refuge  8)
