AbstractIt must be noted that the purpose of IRC's on-site fire visit was to gather information concerning the spread of fire, the spread of smoke. evacuation procedures (if applicable), fire fighting operations and overall effectiveness of the building's fire protection and control features. Real fire information of this sort can prove valuable when planning future research programs or projects, and potentially serve as feedback to the Code writing committees in their ongoing assessment of the effectiveness of fire protection measures mandated by the National Building and Fire Codes. A determination of the cause of the fire was not within the scope of the study, and no effort was made by IRC staff to collect information which would allow such a determination.
