I have always been taught that the old wild west movie stuff about a cowboy tossing cartridges into the camp fire and have them go off was bogus. Excessive heat (like a house fire)can ignite the powder but by then the brass has softened to a point where there was no good seal and the bullet just limped out. Am I wrong? Channel 8 in Indy just had a segment about explosions from ammo in a house fire last night.
It's too late for me, save yourself.
