Fry, J.F., 1956. AN EXAMINATION OF FIRE REPORTS FROM THREE I.C.I. ESTABLISHMENTS. Fire Research Notes 263
Fire reports from three Division of I.C.I. have been examined. One Division reported 156 incidents and the others 17 and 3 incidents respectively. The cause pattern differs from that in manufacturing industries as a whole and is linked with the type of activities carried on; for example, spontaneous ignition was a more frequent cause than usual because of the hazards of some of the materials handled. The systems of fire spotting, fire fighting and fire reporting appear to be highly efficient and none of the fires reached very serious proportions.
