Tell us about yourself!
KimoM1, first off Im a fire inspector and your statement is completely false. Freon has nothing to do with being a fire hazard, its a nonflammable chemical. If you look up the MSDS for freon it will tell you it is dangerous but not flammable. Also this is not the cause of "many" house fires. and im not sure what you mean by "fire 101". If your referring to NFPA 101 the Life Safety Code it doesn't have anything to do with a fridge being the cause of the fire.
godson1952, the fridge will not produce enough heat to cause a fire. Even basic untreated wood has an ignition temperature of around 450-500 degrees.
