Burn Cell 1 was furnished with a large couch along the east wall, and a reclining chair in the southwest corner. The flooring material was half hardwood floor on the west, and half carpet with padding on the east. There was a 6’0” sliding glass door in the center of the west wall, and 4’x4’ window on the north wall. These window openings, along with the door and window on the south side, provided ample ventilation to create a robust flashover. The area of origin was in a trash container located immediately north of the couch, in the northeast corner of the room.
Flashover occurred approximately 4 minutes after ignition
Maximum ceiling temperature: 1730° F
Maximum floor temperatures: 1570° F
The fire burned post flashover for 2 minutes before being extinguished.
