Lawson, D.I., 1969. MEMO ON POTENTIAL SAVING THAT MIGHT BE EFFECTED BY RAPID FIRE DETECTION. Fire Research Notes 781
From the records of over a thousand large fires the numbers which became large through delay in discovery is known. From these the proportion which would have probably become large through faulty building design etc., has been discounted and it has been assumed that the rest could have been prevented from becoming large by the provision of an automatic detection system.
