We have separate storage cupboards for inorganic acids (many of which are oxidizing agents) and organic acids (many of which are flammable).  If we didn't have an organic acids cupboard, we would store it with organic solvents.  The reaction of acetic acid with nitric acid might be violent, the reaction of acetic acid with ethanol is slow and quiet.
