Woolfe, H., 1960. FIRES IN POST-WAR DWELLING XLI (AN ANALYSIS OF REPORTS OF FIRES ATTENDED BY FIRE BRIGADES IN GREAT BRITAIN 1956). Fire Research Notes 448
An analysis has been made of reports of fires in post-war temporary and permanent non-traditional dwellings in 1956. This is intended as the last of a series of similar analyses. The rate of incidence of fires in temporary dwellings has continued to increase, and is now greater than that in dwellings of all types grouped together. Permanent non-traditional dwellings appear to have a fire risk well below the average. It is possible that the high incidence rate in temporary dwellings, which were originally expected to last ten years only, may be partly due to age.
