Fire Engineering Simulation: Row Home Kitchen Fire (or Meth Lab)

Simulation by Battalion Chief Frank Montagna, FDNY, and CommandSim

This firefighter training simulation scenario depicts a kitchen fire in an ordinary brick and joist constructed building with a one story wood frame extension in the rear. This can be used as a straightforward kitchen fire, with several levels of smoke and fire, or made more complex with victims on the second floor, and an optional clandestine drug lab in the basement. Download documentation for the simulation below the picture.
