Abstract
This project aims to develop knowledge about factors that lead to that some fires develop into large

fires and investigate whether there are specific characteristics of large fires in different types of

objects. The project has resulted in three reports dealing with three different types of objects

(buildings). The first report deals with fires in school buildings, the second deals with attic fires in

apartment buildings and the third deals with fires at nuclear power plants. These three reports are

summarized in this final report.



In addition to the findings related to the three studied objects, the project has resulted in a

In addition to the findings related to the three studied objects, the project has resulted in a

methodology on how statistics and case studies can be combined in a systematic way to present,

analyse and draw common conclusions of different but similar events. The methodology can be

used to find factors that contribute or lead to a specific injury or event. (Less)
