Waterproof is good. It seems that more damage is done by water used in putting out smaller fires than by the fire itself. Of course, if you forego the water, the small fires become big ones.
About 17 years ago, during a spate of school fires here, an enterprising teacher responsible for a Mac network at a school that had had its computer lab torched, rescued all the boxes after the fire, extracted the hard drives and span them up in other computers. It was a long time ago and I've forgotten the details, but I seem to recall that all but one or two of the drives worked perfectly. It was well reported in the local Mac club newsletters at the time, so I should try to look for the full story...
