Insulation around wires

Well I'm finally in the house!!
I hope for a weekend project to insulate above the sill with some faced fiberglass. I just want to make sure it is alright to tuck it in there with all the wiring that goes throughout the house? I would imagine it is fire retardant, but figured I would ask to be on the safe side.

Thanks!

Assuming that the wire you have is composed of the usually white or yellow exterior sheath containing the individually insulated conductors with or without a ground, contact with the insulation in your house won't cause a problem in a normal installation.
