Hogg, J.M., 1963. THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE IGNITION OF FIRES IN BUILDINGS IN ENGLAND AND WALES AND CLIMATOLOGICAL VARIATIONS OVER THE PERIOD 1951 TO 1961. Fire Research Notes 522
The influence of weather on the occurrence of fire has most frequently been studied in relation to forest and bush areas. This note deals with the effect of weather on the number of fires which occurred in buildings in England and Wales during the years 1951 to 1961. The results obtained do not, in general, agree with results published in earlier studies undertaken in Japan and the United States of America. It is conceivable, however, that fires occurring under different conditions may be affected by different weather effects.
