When you think house fire, you probably think either cooking fire or a fireplace fire. You probably don't think of fires in a home that is still under construction. Unfortunately, they occur there too.
As you can see in the picture, the smoke accumulates near the ceiling and it starts to "fill" the space with black smoke. And that smoke is hot; really hot. The fire in this house may have been as hot at 1,000-1,400 degrees near the ceiling.
The line where the smoke stopped is called the demarcation line. In this fire, where the smoke was so hot, the line is very easy to see. As we move further into the home, (the fire started in the garage) the amount of smoke decreased and the demarcation line is not as defined.
This cleanup requires a good knowledge of fire, smoke movement, construction, and fire cleanup.
