Re: [Histonet] Paraffin Block Storage

Maybe it's the Halon they have a problem with - I thought those were

a little problem.
Halon removes the oxygen from the air.

We used to store our paraffin blocks in cabinets also in a room (probably 
  feets long X 6 wide X 8 high); we used to store 9 years worth of blocks 
  each year we disposed off the oldest to make room for the on going year.
  We had also extinguishers and a smoke detector. We were never cited.

  with your description.
