Following a news item from fire chiefs saying they burn well whilst under construction - are there more people dying in these modern flats and townhouses? Can think of a recent one again in Manchester area where they were trapped on 3rd floor of a town house...

Is that the case in town houses though? I've only been in one modern one I think

The ones round my way (not that there are a lot) have proper rooms with doors.

However, they only have one stairwell. It that's already on fire / smokelogged, dropping out of second storey windows would be daunting - or impossible if they're been fitted with safety catches and the keys aren't to hand, especially in children's rooms. That's why loft conversions are supposed to have an external means of escape in case the staircase can't be used - why don't the building regs for townhouses specify that? Or maybe they do - I wouldn't know, I've never contemplated buying one.

I live in a traditional Scottish 4 storey tenement (over 100 years old).

Top floor because I want good views and nobody tapdancing above me.

Got an abseiling ropes securely tied near the window in my bedroom for when their will (inevitably) be a fire!
