Where to Store Fireplace Ashes

My house has a mudroom and it also has a fireplace. Could I keep a little ash can with the ashes for the fireplace in the mudroom?

That is a very risky idea.  Many house fires begin because people mistakenly put ashes they think are cool in ash cans and start fires. I strongly suggest you always keep the ash can outside.
