Hinton, J., 1953. AN ANALYSIS OF FIRES INVOLVING LIQUID FUEL GAS DURING THE YEARS 1947-1952. REPORTS FROM THE N.F.S. AND FIRE BRIGADES IN THE UNITED KINGDOM 1947-1952.. Fire Research Notes 77
An analysis has been made of the reports of fires involving liquid fuel gas during 1952 and the results compared with those of previous analyses. During 1952, 124 incidents were attended. In 83 incidents (67 per cent) the liquid fuel gas was the material first ignited giving a rate of 1.7 per 1,000 tons of gas sold, 52 of these fires were due to leakage of gas from cylinders and in about one-third of the incidents liquid fuel gas apparatus was the source of ignition. There were 80 casualties, all non-fatal, reported in 1952; 77 of these occurred in incidents in which liquid fuel gas was the material first ignited.
