Hello everybody, (Happy 2007 to you all!)
During our very un-official SB fire testing at our house (sort of
throwing a SB on a fire) I learned that putting the full blast (garden
hose) on it does not extingquish the straw fire very well as it also
brings in oxygen. A very soft brizzle however was VERY effective.
I suggest we all bring out our x-mas trees and do some more testing.
PS on the Potassium silicate front: Thanks for the replies and yes I
agree that good design is and stays crucial.

Since there are a number of strawbale homes in our area, our local
volunteer fire department has expressed an interest in training the
members in how to fight a fire in a bale house.
I am currently compiling all of the TLS stories about fire for
Does anyone know if there is already a fire department that has
established a protocol for fighting strawbale fires? If not, can you
offer suggestions in this regard?
Thank you in advance.
