AbstractThe St. Lawrence burns provided an unusual opportunity to obtain field measurements of the radiation emitted by different types of burning buildings at various stages in the development of a fire. A representative of the Joint Fire Research Organization (Great Britain) measured the total radiation incident on a surface located a known distance from the burning building. To supplement his results it was decided to measure the equivalent black body temperature of a window in the room where the fire started. These radiant temperature measurements are the subject of this report.
