The National Fire Protection Association filmed this live burn/fire sprinkler demonstration in East Greenwich, Rhode Island, using a 360-degree camera. The video underscores how rapidly fire spreads in today's homes and how quickly home fire sprinklers, a requirement in all U.S. model building codes, can extinguish the flames.
For optimal viewing, access the video via the YouTube app on your phone and maneuver your device in different directions to see various aspects of the event. Watching the video on a Google Chrome web browser is also recommended.
