This one changes completely, depending on whether it is based on the 2005 NEC or the 2008 NEC. One of the articles Conduit mentioned did not exist in the 2005. Which book are you using as a reference?

What makes you think "easily ignitable material" would be allowed?
 
I'm sorry for not getting back sooner. I'm in 2008 and I don't have my code book in front of me. and probably made an uneducated guess on this one...
 
It from time to time can be a host of different things that get near an overcurrent device such as a breaker or motor overload device or disconnect of some sort. I remember in denver when I was an apprentice going to service some equipment at a matress factory. And there where all sorts of easily ignitable materials near the equipment. As an example.
Existing operations. People don't think about it until they are reminded by the fire department....
