comment How do I find the source of the water leaking through the ceiling?
Condensation would be my guess as well. In winter, you should be shooting for about 20% humidity in Minnesota. Have you updated your furnace to a high efficiency model over the last year? Have you upgraded the windows? Both of these things will increase your indoor humidity during the winter. Try running a dehumidifier in the affected areas, and see if the problem goes away.

comment How can I fireproof a room?
Well, the fire that reaches the drywall is not going to be 3000K. Whatever it is, the piece of equipment he is talking about will only generate that temperature internally (likely in a very small, tightly sealed cavity). A fire generated from that device will likely be much cooler, and should behave similar to any other household fire.

Fire rating is usually measured in minutes. Do you have an idea of how long you want to contain a fire?
