  • NIST's National Fire Research Laboratory studies fire at scale, whether it's a small flame on a stovetop or a fire in a multistory building.
  • Scientists' findings inform the updating of fire codes, making buildings, products and people safer.
  • The lab uses special cameras linked to powerful data analysis software and on-premises servers to collect and analyze the complex, detailed information.
