Abstract

"Fire phenomena" may be seen as the spectacular, such as fire tornadoes, pseudo-flame fronts and pyro-cumulonimbus clouds, but some phenomena can appear mundate - ignition, spread and fire shape - yet important to gaining an understanding of fires, being safe during fires and predicting fire behaviour. The mundane can become more interesting as inquiry becomes deeper: thus, ‘ignition’ becomes more interesting when spontaneous combustion, arson and the various forms of lightning are considered. Here only a few phenomena— some spectacular, some mundane—are considered.
