Fire Protection Design

 

When it comes to structural fires, most of the fires occur in residential buildings. These are typically small fires that are confined to the room of origin [1]. One in five fire deaths occurs from these fires. Meanwhile, half of all fire injuries are a direct result of these fires.

 

Figure 1: Reported Structure Fires by Occupancy Category and Extent of Fire Spread 2007-2011 [1].

 

According to a report published by NFPA in Figure 1, storage fires spread beyond the room of origin 69% of the time. This value is the highest among all occupancy classifications. Meanwhile, 58% of residential fires are confined within the object of origin. Confined cooking fires are by far the most common type of reported structure fire.
