The sex tapes were initially thought to be located inside the Pittsboro, N.C. courthouse which caught fire earlier this morning. But a judge confirmed that the tapes were inside a vault that was located away from the courthouse.

The tapes, of course, show Edwards getting snooky with mistress and baby momma Rielle Hunter. They will ostensibly be used in a lawsuit launched by Hunter at a former Edwards aide.

The cause of the fire hasn't been determined. A local paper called the courthouse "historic."
