Confined Fires

Note: Confined fires that extend into the structure, cause significant cost and/or injury are structure fires 111 – Building Fire (or maybe 112 – Fire in a Structure other than a Building) … only code a confined fire for if the fire was confined to the heat holding equipment, without extension.

Note: Confined fires that remain in the heat holding equipment typically require less documentation; i.e. no fire module nor structure fire module.

When dealing with a structure fire, document as such (with fire and structure modules) and with the equipment being involved in ignition as the chimney or flue equipment.
