Results of recent researches of large pool fires are reviewed. Researches on combustion characteristics of large petroleum fires have been conducted by many research groups. To do large fire experiments costs very much and huge open space is taken, but it is important to conduct large scale experiments for obtaining information of large real tank fires. Therefore, in order to promote large pool fire research, understandings of combustion characteristics of petroleum for fire safety design and fire fighting engineering, world wide collaboration is very important.
