Types of Smoke

Types of Smoke

The first step at a fire scene is to calm the fears of those affected. Next, we test the smoke to see which type of fire took place.

  • Wet Smoke – Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Also known as “Smoke webs,” these are more difficult to clean.
  • Dry Smoke – Fast burning at high temperatures.
  • Protein – Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes. Extreme pungent odor.
  • Fuel Oil Soot – Furnace puff backs cause fuel oil soot.
  • Other Types – Tear gas, fingerprint powder, and fire extinguisher residue are other types.
