Abstract
The objective of this study was to prepare a list of articles dealing with actual occurrences of mine fires. The bibliography as completed includes an annotated reference for each article or report cited, underlining the cause, extent, methods used, procedural errors made, results achieved, ventilation effects, and lessons learned from the operation of subduing the particular fire. The bibliography was extended to cover a wider range of articles and references associated with mine fire prevention, protection, causes, sources, equipment for subduing fires and rescue work, methods of subduing fires and rescue and recovery activities, fire-fighting organization, statistics, damage assessments, fire detection, research and testing, and ventilation effects. Accounts of experience gained, lessons learned, seminars and symposia are also listed. The bibliography was designed to cover published articles on mine fires and fire techniques on a world-wide basis, but particularly in the United States, from 1860 to 1974. However, earlier records are fragmentary.
