Ignitable Liquids

Logo for Ignitable Liquids
Jim Pharr defines ignitable liquids. Ignitable liquids are any liquids that will burn. Firefighters must examine the burning characteristics of these liquids, including flashpoint, ignition temperature, how much surface area was exposed, and other items to investigate the source of the fire. Just the presence of an ignitable liquid does not prove that the fire was incendiary. Most people have many ignitable liquids under their sink counter!
