I would think the ash tubs are safe along as they are covered. Any smoldering ash would quickly go extinguished due to lack of oxygen in a covered ash can.. But, just to be safe, mount a CO detector in the same room and see if you get any readings. My basement isn't very tight. I don't think CO from my ash tub is a concern, although its crossed my mind too
