Type III and type V building?
Hey everybody! I'm about done with my FIRE105 class and I have a simple question.
I understand that a type three building is considered normal construction, with limited combustibility and that a type five is wood frame, or mostly residential. But I have a difficult time looking at a building and deciding wich it is sometimes. How do I know if a local restraunt or fast food joint is wood frame or not?
And what materials does a type III consist of? It seems as though ordinary would be wood frame... wouldn't it?
Are their any websites that might show a picture of a structure and quiz me as to what type it is?
