Review the following NIST technical note and video below:

Weinschenk, C., Overholt, K., & Madrzykowski, D. (2016). Simulation of an attic fire in a wood frame residential structure, Chicago, IL. Fire Technology, 52(6), 1629-1658.

National Institute of Standards and Technology. (2014, December 2). Simulation of an attic fire in a wood frame residential structure—Chicago[Video file]. Retrieved from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nY3JO_Kf9Qk#t=14

Be sure to include the following in your case study:

  • Examine the applicable building codes for this structure.
    • How were they developed?
      • Were they developed locally?
      • Were they modified or adopted?
      • If modified, how so?
  • Analyze the tests conducted on materials found in the structure.
    • What types of materials were used in the construction of the house?
    • What were the results?
    • What were the lessons learned?

Your case study response should be two to four pages in length and follow APA guidelines.
