The spillages due to collisions related incidents involving the wagon tankers, which carrying hazardous materials (hazmat), can be followed by fi res or explosions, presents a severe threat to the safety of residents and nearby buildings. In this study, ALOHA and PHAST was used to evaluate the level of thermal radiation at different distances from the place of accident. Discussed scenario analyze a leakage of kerosene from a tanker wagon, from different opening diameters, where is formed a pool fi re. As an assumption for location of possible accident, parts of the railway where it can be expected a large number of people and vehicles were taken. For study area was chosen city of Niš, Serbia.
