Fire is black
In a real fire you are blind. You cannot see because the fire is not light. It is black, hot and threatening. This blackness can make you totally disorientated.
A fires smoke could kill you
When you are asleep, your sense of smell is dulled. The smell of smoke will not awaken you. Carbon monoxide can numb your brain and you can die in your sleep.
Heat alone could kill you
A fires heat can kill you in seconds. One breath of hot gas can burn your lungs and your body can shut down. You don't have to be near the flames.
Time is your biggest enemy
During a fire, you must act quickly. Without an escape plan, you could be trapped. You must have a plan because there is no time to think.
