AbstractThis report presents the results of an extended survey of combustible items in residential living rooms located on the main floors and basement levels. The objective of the survey was to enhance the validity of the results of an earlier pilot study by surveying a substantially larger number of homes across Canada. The web-based survey attracted 598 respondents and the responses were used to identify the main types of combustible furniture.
