DACC fire students get demonstration


Delaware Area Career Center adult fire instructor Austin Kerns uses a wooden doll house to show his students how smoke and fire travel between rooms in a house that’s on fire on the evening of March 14. During the demonstration “windows” were opened and closed on home to show students how fire will travel to rooms with oxygen and how closing the windows and cutting off oxygen can temporarily choke the fire.

The doll house was built by Adam Daron, a Delaware Area Career Center student in the course, based on designs he saw on the web and was constructed with materials used to build modern homes to give the demonstration more authenticity. March 14 was also a windy day, which Kerns said he was thankful for because it shows how the wind can change the fire’s behavior.
