Abstract

An usual safe chemical warehouse can turn to a nightmare to it's environment in case of fire in it. There are many unknown factors involved in the assessment of environmental impacts of a chemical warehouse fire. One way to solve this problem is to use gained experiences. The aim of this study was to develop a warehouse fire accident database, which can be used to benefit the experiences from real warehouse fires in assessing the environmental impacts of a warehouse fire.
