Fires spread FAST!

A couple of minutes into this video they start a fire in a simulated dorm room to show how quickly a fire can spread. This is really impressive, and a little scary.

A good reason to make sure your fire alarm is working, and pay attention when it goes off.

When I was a post doc, the house next door to us burned down late at night in the middle of winter - it was frightening how quickly it happened. We were lucky it didn't spread to our house, in the middle of Pittsburgh the houses are very close together.

Thanks to Debbie Decker on the DCHAS-L list.
