Fire Dynamics in a confined space is considerably difficult. Flashover container enables experimental examining of many of its aspects in controllable conditions. For this reason there is an extensive research in form of large scale tests goes in Zbiroh where large container complex for liquefied gas fuel was built. In this time a human factor and its effect on the environment is in the research. Among others the tests were aimed to examining the influence of the training on the efficiency of the intervention under indoor fire conditions, namely the ability of a fire-fighter affect the thermal field and the thermal radiation in the right direction. The article describes the experiments that were carried out.
