In December, a week before Christmas, these photos were burned in a fire but I was able to rescue the albums and get them ready for restoration. The room they were in was the epicentre of the fire but the photos weren't incinerated since they were so closely packed (thankfully!). They were, however, badly burned and smoke damaged. So I took the albums and popped them in my deep freeze until I could begin the process of recovery.
If you can't get to them right away, store your rescued photos in a freezer until you're ready to work with them. This will keep them from getting further ruined by mould and mildew. Freezing the photos also makes it easier to separate them from each other (or from plastic if they were kept in a plastic album).
