AbstractThis project investigates factors that affect evacuation from typical single family houses in the event of a fire. Through review of current literature and scientific information, egress time is found to depend on the location, cause, and time of the fire, the characteristics of the occupants, building design and the existence and location of a working smoke alarm in the house.
