Baldwin, R., 1970. THE USE OF WATER IN THE EXTINCTION OF FIRES BY BRIGADES. Fire Research Notes 803
Some American data on the relationship between the rate of application of water and the fire area and between the time taken to control the fire and the fire area are reviewed. Comparison with published British data suggests that in spite of different techniques and conditions, at this level of comparison, the results are very similar. The rate of application of water is about four times as great as in experimental fires, suggesting that the chief problems of fire fighting are operational.
