Fires are fast; a small flame can turn into a major fire with 30 seconds. In minutes, the house can be filled with thick black smoke.
Fires are hot; the heat of the flame is more threatening than the flame itself. At floor level, the temperature of the room can be 100 degree and rise to 600 degrees at eye level. These temperatures will melt your skin and scorch your lungs.
Fires turn dark; at first the fire is a bright orange, red, yellow and blue colored but will quickly turn into complete darkness with the black smoke.
Fires kill; fire produces poisonous gases that make you disoriented and drowsy. The smoke and gases kill more people than the flame does itself.
