Wouldn't think so. But I don't know for sure.
I remember reading about a large boatyard fire on the east coast in the late sixties. Afterward there was nothing left of the boats themselves.  Just a bunch of fiberglass tanks lying around still filled with fuel. Up until that time there had always been a question about the safety of FG fuel tanks.

Have a great New Year.
