You Have Only Minutes to Escape!
As these photos from the video No Time to Spare clearly show, you and your family have less than three minutes to safely escape in the event of a fire in your home. Less than three minutes!
|52 seconds - The smoke alarm sounds to alert the residents of fire.
|1 minute 42 seconds - The temperature is 40 degrees at shoulder height and escape is still very possible.|
|2 minutes 24 seconds - The temperature is 700 degrees throughout the entire house and fatal to anyone still inside.|
These photos were taken from a video which shows the spread of a fire which started in a livingroom in a two-storey family home.
