The locally owned restoration franchise office donated staff time with labor to build the fire structure along with the International Association of Arson Investigators (IAAI). The unique educational experience for Tampa Bay area firefighters and industry professionals included instruction and demonstrations covering the Fire Investigators of Florida course topic, Fire Origin Pattern Persistence in Post Flash-Over Compartment Fires.

According to Impson, the 10-square-foot by 24-square-foot burn cell was built by Paul Davis to simulate a structural house fire. An accelerant fire was started in the back corner of the building with one way out. Smoke and fire billowed through the house making its way to the front door to find oxygen as part of instruction about the third side of the “Fire Triangle”. Tampa Fire Rescue was on hand to oversee the fire demonstration and to extinguish the smoke and flames in the parking lot at the Sheraton Tampa Brandon Hotel, 10221 Princess Palm Ave. in Tampa.
