AbstractDuring actual firefighting, members of fire departments seldom have the opportunity of seeing the rapid spread of fire when it is in its first stages. Information about flame spread can be of great assistance to the fire services and building officials in their work of protecting life and property. This report outlines the model test made to study a fire in which two children lost their lives. As such tests reveal much helpful information, it is hoped that it may aid in averting tragedies in the future.
