This is kind of a minor point, but in the 'Backdrafts and flashovers' section I don't think the distinction should be made between temperature change and chemical change because temperature itself can be considered a chemical characteristic. Maybe 'compostional change' would be more accurate? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 15:07, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

FYI: A smoke explosion and backdraft are two, similar yet, separate fire-related phenomenon. A backdraft occurs when oxygen is introduced to a fire which in a confined space and in the process of decay. A smoke explosion takes place when ventilation or attack of the fire disrupts the thermal layering in the fire room/structure. This disruption causes the flammable gases in the area to ignite, causing an explosive spontaneous combustion similar to a flashover. Both backdrafts and smoke explosions produce nearly the same effects, an explosive spontaneous combustion which takes the form of "flame thrower". -Credentials: 3 Years NYS Fire service —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 05:28, 17 February 2010 (UTC)
