Abstract

Imagine that a seemingly minor fire has been discovered in the warehouse storing raw materials for your plant. The fire department is notified and you expect that the emergency will be over shortly. Twelve hours and several millions dollars worth of damage later, the fire is extinguished. You stand there in shock as you try to make sense of what happened. Reality or fiction? The answer can depend on many factors, some of which you can resolve, easily, and some which will require an extensive commitment of time and money.
