That's a very good point. However, haven't there been some problems with toxic fumes from the burning of modern materials such as foam panels and certain plastic laminates? My aunt once dated a firefighter back in the 1970s and he said that in many ways fire was almost like a living creature that is capable of doing some very unexpected things.

I Quite agree

Also, under Fleet Photos, at this website, they have pretty good interior shots of the Edward L Ryerson. These include pilothouse, galley and passenger quarters. But maybe you've seen that already.

This is why photos aren't posted.

I'll admit that I am a huge fan of pictures of the interiors of the modern day great lakes fleet. I'm not sure if it's a company issue or not, but we rarely get to see photos of the interiors of the ships. I get it, the company probably doesn't want its sailors walking around snapping photos on work hours, or perhaps they want to keep the info of their ships to themselves. Whatever it is, I'm hoping for more photos in the future.
