« on: November 24, 2014, 06:12:09 AM »
Does anyone have any knowledge of any research that may have been carried out regarding fires involving video cassettes?

Work was done in the mid-1990s by the Fire Research Station (BRE) following a serious fire in a house where there were numerous video tapes stacked up. Work was also done, as part of a look at fire growth in retail premises and efficiency of sprinklers, on a mocked-up video rental store. Try looking at www.bre.co.uk and at their bookshop. If you don't find anything obvious, try their enquiry service. Possible contact might be a Mr Martin Shipp, although I understand he now works part-time, as do several other former colleagues of mine, but he is the most likely to know.
