    On a side note most treated lumber is not made with arsenic anymore.

    It is illegal to willfully burn PT lumber in all 50 states, this includes the new non arsenic type.

    If the house burns down, it will not be "willfully burned".

    The more important issue, if that's ACQ, is what kind of fasteners were used. ACQ causes serious galvanic corrosion.

    Pretty much if the house burns down, there will be more worry about the structure causing toxic materials released to the atmosphere, due to the breakdown from the fire, then worry about a few yards of PT lumber.

    Some areas use PT Lumber for the entire house for termite protection. I think HI and FL do, but I'm not sure.

    I've heard of that, but I think they use borate, not CCA.
