Roughly two thirds of all deaths resulting from
enclosure fires can be attributed to the presence of
carbon monoxide (CO) which is the dominant toxicant in
fire deaths. A long-term program (Carbon Monoxide
production and Prediction Project) at the Building and
Fire Research Laboratory is seeking to develop an
understanding of and predictive capability for the
generation of CO in enclosure fires.
