>I revisited this post from two months ago, and noticed that the link Chris provided for Josh Thornton’s Light Clay Straw research document gives only the short (4 pg) “Research Highlights” version.  The full “Research Report” is 148 pages and contains 10 pages on the fire testing (plus page ‘v’ in the Executive Summary).  I looked but cannot find the full report on the CMHC website.  However I obtained the full report from the author last year.  I will send it to anyone who requests it (via YouSendIt)(14MB file size).

I don't have my copy in front of me, but I believe it had some fire testing in the report.
