Will the thermal environment will always be lethal?

A thermal environment can become lethal when the phenomenon extension produces heat and toxicity conditions not compatible with the life. During the various phases of a fire, when very high temperatures are reached, the phenomenon of "flash over" or widespread fire occurs, where everything inside the range of the heat release by the fire ignites "spontaneously”. It’s important to quantify the risk of a temperature rapid accumulation in order to qualify and quantify the risks deriving from it for people and things. This risk will vary according to the materials present in the area of ​​interest and depending on the room ventilation or the building hosting the end product.
