Temporary wooden erections used for entertainments, bazaars, etc., unless special care be taken in their construction, may become fire traps of the worst order. Wooden stalls draped with flimsy material will be distributed about the floor space, while possibly the whole roof and walls may be covered with bunting. Such an arrangement forms an ideal ground for the spread of fire with appalling suddenness. It is most important, then, that all materials, wood, and draperies used in an erection of this description should be chemically rendered non-inflammable. Numerous and ample exits should be provided and should be clearly labelled. Buckets of water and chemical extinguishers should be kept in readiness for the immediate extinction of an outbreak of fire.
