Title: High-rise fires; Positive Pressure Ventilation
Description: Members of a research team watch flames erupt from an abandoned Chicago apartment building during a November 10, 2006, test of positive pressure ventilation in high-rise fires. Red truck (lower right corner) is a mobile ventilation system blowing air through the front door of the test building to keep the corridors and stairwells passable, while forcing the fire outside.
