- Fire burns FAST! In less than 30 seconds flames can turn into a major fire. It takes minutes for t black smoke, soot, and ash to fill a house or commercial space and for it to be engulfed in flames.
- Fire is extremely HOT! Heat can be just as damaging as flames. A room's temperatures can be 100 degrees on the floor and rise to 600 degrees at eye level! Inhaling this super-hot air will scorch your lungs and melt your clothes to your skin.
- Fire is DARK! Fire starts burning bright, but quickly produces black smoke and leaves you in complete darkness.
- Fire can be DEADLY! Toxic gases from smoke kill more people than the flames do. Fire produces poisonous gases that cause disorientation and drowsiness. *Asphyxiation is the leading cause of deaths due to fire, far exceeding burns.
