We have an issue with the amount of paper files being stored in an office, now I went with the BTU's for paper (6500 BTU's/lb), multiplied by the amount, say 200lbs... so that is 1,300,000 ..  then divide by the space, 100 sq ft.  this gives me 13,000 for the fire load.   Where can I find the table that sets these fire load requirements?  13,000 is the fire load, but I cannot find where this range is.
