Unless the cellulose in question is very old, any modern day cellulose is treated to be fire retardant. Some of the most common chemicals used fro this are borax & boric acid, both relatively benign in nature (borax common in soaps, boric acid common in eye drops). Because of the inherent nature of cellulose to allow air movement through it, in has been know to slow a fires progress by not allowing it to pass through. I had an insurance adjuster tell me that he has had several buildings saved because of this.
