Principles of Fire • A fire is - the rapid oxidation of a fuel producing heat, particulates, gases and non-ionizing radiation • Broadly speaking, there are three essentials to every fire. There must be: • Fuel, combustible material - i.e. something to burn • Air - i.e. oxygen to sustain combustion • Heat, - i. e. higher than ignition temperature of the combustible material • at the same time at the same place. • The process of combustion can be likened to a triangle whose sides are:
Methods of Extinguishing Fires: • The three principle methods of extinguishing fires (i.e. the removal of one side of the "triangle of combustion") are: • Starving,removing the fuel • Smothering,removing the air (oxygen) • Cooling, removing the heat
