Videos of small fires quickly turning into "flashovers" -- that is, when everything in the room bursts into flame all at once. With temperatures commonly 1,000 degrees or more, even firefighters in full gear would have only about 5 seconds to get out in order to survive. This shows why it's important to GET OUT when there's a fire, even if it looks small at the moment.
