Abstract : A survey of Detroit, Michigan was made to determine the types and distribution of tinder and kindling fuel arrays present in urban areas which can be ignited by thermal radiation from nuclear detonations. Data on urban characteristics which would effect the start and growth of radiation induced fires was also gathered. A total of 275 sites, distributed among 10 residential and 6 non-residential use classes was surveyed. (Author)
