I was thinking to myself as we walked through that if, God forbid, there was a fire, that house would have been blown up to kingdom come. I momentarily considered making the fire dept aware as a safety measure, but didn't want to have a family member come after me for reporting the guy. We didn't buy the house.

This is a lack of knowledge. Ammo stored in the boxes they came in does not go BOOM when there is a fire. Ammo stored in a sealed metal ammo can could potentially burst due to pressure build up. Only a gun with a round in the chamber could be dangerous. A gun with a loaded magazine is not a problem in a fire either, it's only a gun with a round in the chamber ready to fire.

Not a problem storing ammo, however it seems like it would be..

Watch at 12:25
Go to 14:35 to hear the firefighter talking about standing in his gear while the burn took place.

Watch 17:40 onward where they simulated a retail ammo store with 115,000 round of ammo.
