I can't say about all fire departments, but I have friends who are firemen. Their policy locally is that if there are accelerant's located inside a structure, and there are no people inside to attempt to save, they back off and don't fight the fire aggressively.

If it is hot enough ammo CAN explode, but the danger from being hit from a projectile isn't that great. But the burning powder, especially if you're a hand loader is an accelerant and may cause them to back off.

I don't do it, but at least one of my friends stores all of his powder in a storage building not attached to his home just in case of a fire.
