Abstract
This Bureau of Mines paper discusses a simple approach to the design and implementation of mine fire detection systems. Topics include state-of-the-art technology in fire sensors and systems, a discussion of the hazards that different types of figures can produce, and some simple guidelines for determining the level of protection required for different mining areas and types of combustibles used or stored.
