    Learn the characteristics of different building materials, and how each loses structural strength and integrity under fire conditions. Understand the potential for killer flame spread, including hidden fire in voids that can create a deadly ambush. Be ready to spot the telltale warning signs of collapse, and the added risks of explosion and toxic smoke inherent in special occupancies.
