Fry, J.F., 1968. FIRES IN POST-WAR MULTI-STOREY FLATS IN LONDON 1965. Fire Research Notes 674
Records of fires in post-war multi-storey flats attended by the fire brigades in London are examined from time to time to see whether these buildings present exceptional fire risks. Apart from fires in dust chutes the rate of incidence of fire in the flats is lower than that in dwellings as a whole. There is no evidence that the fires experienced in the flats are more dangerous than those in other dwellings and the building standards appear to be satisfactory in preventing the spread of fire.
