Hogg, J.M., 1963. THE EFFECT OF WEATHER CONDITIONS ON THE SPREAD OF FIRE IN BUILDINGS IN ENGLAND AND WALES FROM 1951 TO 1961. Fire Research Notes 528
Two measurements of fire spread have been used to test whether the kind of weather conditions which affected the number of fires occurring in buildings in the years 1951 to 1961, inclusive, also affected the resultant spread of fire. The amounts of sunshine and rainfall appear to affect the spread of fire, but vapour pressure, which had been found to influence fire starts had no measurable effect on fire spread.
