Also known as: ‘Fire Origin Story’ ‘Story of Fire Origin’ ‘fireOriginStory’
Definition: Identifies the story where the fire originated within the building.
Purpose: The story of fire origin, combined with other structural characteristics, is helpful for gaining a better understanding of fire behavior and identifying any special problems in fire strategy and tactics. Information on the frequency and nature of above - or below - grade-level fires is needed for assessing aerial apparatus needs and performance. A fire in the upper levels of a high-rise building is often difficult to control because of delays in moving personnel and equipment to the fire floor.
