If you have sealed combustion with fresh air and exhaust both routed outside, it should be perfectly safe. If drawing combustion air from the same room as the DC, it’s theoretically possible to achieve the perfect dust/air ratio to generate an explosion but that would be a LOT of dust suspended in the air. It would have to go into the furnace, ignite and flare backward from the intake to explode, so not very likely but possible.
