Fire (Pool)

Results when spilled flammable liquids are ignited. The magnitude of the effect zone created by a pool fire will depend on the size of the flame that is generated, which in turn depends on the size of the spill surface and the properties of the spilled fluid. The flame’s footprint is determined by the containment of the liquid spill, which is often controlled by any dikes or curbs present. If a spill is unconfined, the liquid will spread over an area determined by the fluid’s viscosity and the characteristics of the surface on which the material is spilled, such as its porosity.
