His machine tools (including a Bridgeport mill and a lathe) in the garage were all but melted down to slag, meaning they were still recognizable as what they once were but rendered to scrap.

Point being don't rely on hidey-holes entirely.
My family lost most of our possessions and our animals a few years ago in a fire. We were just able to make it out of the house with literally about a minute or two to spare. I now have a safety deposit box at the bank for the sole purpose of storing a small hard drive that I back up periodically with important documents, photographs (fortunately some were able to be retrieved by professionals off the one computer that didn't actually burn), etc.

While I am not advocating this as a solution for any and every possible situation, I only wish I had thought of it sooner before some of our irreplaceable old family photos were destroyed.
