Module in Fire Technology & Arson Investigation
Class K Fires - Class K is a new classification of fire as of and involves fires in combustible cooking fuels such as vegetable or animal fats. Combustion - is the self-sustaining process of rapid oxidation of a fuel being reduced by an oxidizing agent along with the evolution of heat and light. Dry Chemicals and Halons - method of fire extinguishment, interrupt the flame producing chemical reaction, resulting in rapid extinguishment. Electrical Heat Energy. Backdraft - a phenomenon in which a fire that has consumed all available oxygen suddenly explodes when more oxygen is made available, typically because a door or window has been opened. Dielectric Heating - The heating that results from the action of either pulsating direct current, or alternating current at high frequency on a non-conductive material. Boiling Point - The temperature of a substance where the rate of evaporation exceeds the rate of condensation.

The evidence of early fire use is often ambiguous because of the difficulty in determining whether the archeological evidence is the result of accidental fire or its deliberate use. Such evidence include finds of occupation sites with fired or baked soils, bones or stones that have been changed through the application of heat, and areas containing thick layers of ash and charcoal that might have hearth structures. The earliest finds, in Kenya and Ethiopia, date from about 1. Less equivocal evidence exists for deliberate fire use in the Paleolithic period, beginning about , years ago. Neolithic sites have yielded objects that may have been used in fire, making drill for producing friction, heat in wood and flints for striking sparks from iron pyrites.
