The fire is a thermal decomposition of flammable materials in uncontrolled time. As opposed to the combustion processes in a furnace or fireplace, the fire is an unrestrained phenomenon. An uncontrolled fire starts when its source, i.e. a cigarette end or electric arc delivers the energy sufficient for inflammation of other flammable material.

Three factors shall occur to cause fire:

  • ammable material,
  • oxygen,
  • source of heat.

In case one of the aforementioned factors is absent, the risk of fire drops. Two of the factors, i.e. oxygen and source of heat are beyond any control. Thus, only one of the factors, i.e. the flammable material, may be controlled. That is why the selection of the appropriate building materials is so important while designing public utility facilities.
