Is that all you've got?? Picture 2 is a good one or bad depending on how you look at it. 7 and 10 are also potential problems. The rest, though messy, are sufficiently spread out to generate little extra heat and thus not too much of a hazzard. Hopefully with the cat you don't end up with a Chevy Chase Christmas Vacation repeat.
Of course my home is a disaster waiting to happen. 4 households worth of stuff crammed into one home. Her grandmother's, her father's, her mother's, and my father's stuff in addition to our own. Of course 4 deaths in a 5 year period will do that to you.
That's nothing..most is low voltage stuff execpt the hair dryer. Ask any fireman we have seen much worse. POOR HOUSEKEEPING is what starts most fires in a home,,.bar none.
