Blaze : The Forensics of Fire
|Series:||Black Box Ser.|
1999. First edition, first printing. A very good copy only marked by light foxing to the edges and prelims. The d/w is unclipped and near fine.
This volume is not just the story of some of the most dreadful fires of modern times, it also follows the story once the fire has been put out - the work of investigators who piece together the cause of the ignition, the mechanism by which the fire spread, and even the occupant's behaviour. Their work leads to discoveries that form the basis of legislation, making buildings safer places. The text features fire-fighters, fire-service investigators, fire-safety engineers and forensic fire-scientists.
