    There are a lot of chemicals that can mix (ie. cleaning agents, chemicals in garages) during a fire, and it's really difficult to say what would happen other then it's bad. I don't know a lot about this subject. I just never take chances and always assume the absolute worst. I have heard that the common bed mattress creates nerve gas. (or something very similar) your best bet is to do web searching.
