A fire under laboratory conditions could still produce surprises.
It would be easier to analyse accurately than a fire in real world conditions with all the unknown variations.
Which would be virtually impossible.
You've won me over.
Arson investigation is sciencey.
Willingham is an eye-opener.
Using my knowledge of stove design and fires I can see how the Bradford fire could spread with extraordinary speed once established. But that first
bit of seating burning looks to have caught much too fast. And the investigation is documented as having been rushed, relevant photographs notable by
their elusiveness, although they were known to have been taken.
Today is the anniversary and the only day we are welcome to discuss and commemorate this disaster.
For the rest of the year no discussion, no merchandise, no fancy sponsored walks or whatever.
The survivors are disturbed by the 'branding' of the disaster.
They want us to shut up and contribute to the burns unit privately and without fuss if we really want to make a difference.
I hope some experienced fire investigators will take a fresh look and perhaps write a piece for us to read next year.
One thing I know. Nasty types like to arrange for someone else to take the blame. Like spreading accelerant where one of the many cigarettes will fall
