Hey there, Theo.

Basically when there has been fire involved the best and most reliable options would always be a professional solution, such as a data recovery company. That’s why if your data is really important, I’d suggest you go straight for that - Data Recovery.

On the other hand, if you’d like to try recovering this data by yourself, you can give it a go with some data recovery tools to see if you have any luck. Note that if the drives have sustained physical damage, this could complicate things a lot more if you decide to go for a data recovery company later.

Hope that helps. Good luck!
