North, M.A., 1973. FIRE DAMAGE TO BUILDINGS - SOME STATISTICS. Fire Research Notes 994
A random sample of about 5000 fires confined to the room of origin has been examined to establish the amount of fire damage to the building fabric. Overall, only 30 per cent of the fires caused damage to the building but this figure varies with the occupancy of the building. The distribution of damage to the various building elements (floor, wall, ceiling and roof) is studied.
