Abstract
This report presents an analysis of three major fires in Sweden. Two of the fires concerns the industry and the third is a fire in a assembly hall. The study is based on available written material. The quality and reliability varies, and appears to depend on the aim, interest and competence of the investigator. In some cases, the information is sufficient to assess the performance of an automatic detection or sprinkler system, but none of the fires are described enough to make a quantitative assessment of the quality of the fire-fighting operation. The key events are clear in the material, so it is possible to draw an event tree describing the fire and alternative actions. To be able to use occurring fires to develop methods of predicting...

This report presents an analysis of three major fires in Sweden. Two of the fires concerns the industry and the third is a fire in a assembly hall. The study is based on available written material. The quality and reliability varies, and appears to depend on the aim, interest and competence of the investigator. In some cases, the information is sufficient to assess the performance of an automatic detection or sprinkler system, but none of the fires are described enough to make a quantitative assessment of the quality of the fire-fighting operation. The key events are clear in the material, so it is possible to draw an event tree describing the fire and alternative actions. To be able to use occurring fires to develop methods of predicting the outcome of future fires, there is a need for a better and more systematic base of data, than available in the three studied fires. The studied fires reveals also that it is not uncommon that the incident commander is unaware of the extent and location of the fire during the incident. (Less)
