What happens in 2 minutes to 3 minutes after a kitchen fire starts?
•The fire consumes kitchen cabinets, wood counter tops and shelves stocked with plastic storage containers and dry goods like cardboard boxes of cereal, crackers, and cookies.
•More and more heat is generated. The temperature in the upper layer of hot gases rises to 400 degrees F—hot enough to kill people. •The heat concentrates is a very dense smoke cloud hovering just a few feet above the floor. It may also include more toxic components like arsenic (used as a wood preservative) and lead (from old paint), as well as irritants like ammonia.
