A survey is made of what is being done in France on fire modeling. The author emphasizes the activities carried on the development and application of zone models and field models, started at the end of the 1970s and concerning buildings or industrial fires. A list of laboratories and research centers is presented including also the places where full size experiments can be executed. The present trends towards applications to regulation and environment problems are shown.
