Foam Insulation ok with Dryer Vent?


To ensure my attic-located washer pipes (dont ask me why they put them on the outsite) dont freeze I put insulation on the outside of the wall and sealed it up with stryo-board and "Great Stuff" foam insulator. I just wanted to make sure there isn't a fire hazard having a dryer vent near this material. The dryer is fairly small, new, electric front-loader.
