Fry, J.F., 1969. FIRES IN POST-WAR MULTI-STOREY FLATS IN LONDON 1966. Fire Research Notes 751
As part of a continuing series of analyses reports of fires in post-war multi-storey flats in inner London have been studied. They show that the rates of incidence of these fires are lower than those in dwellings in general if fires in rubbish chutes are discounted; that fires start most frequentIy in kitchens (again discounting those in rubbish chutes); that fires in common service areas are frequently associated with accumulations of rubbish; and that most fires which spread beyond the room of origin are confined to the flat or maisonette in which they start. There is little evidence of special escape or fire-fighting problems although two persons were rescued from one fire by turn-table ladder.
