i-Catcher Records Fire
On the 15th of October 2003, an accident at Fareham Snooker Club caused a fire to break out in the early hours of the morning, starting from the kitchen. An iCatcher Console system was recording at the time, with one of its cameras pointed directly at the source of the fire.
From the recorded images, it was determined that the fire took over five hours to become noticeable, as i-Catcher's motion detection systems didn't pick up the fire until 4:51am, five and a half hours after the club was locked up for the night.
The footage available here shows the fire from the time it registered as motion on i-Catcher, to the time the intense heat caused the camera to fail. The last frame of the sequence is completely blue. This is when the capture card in the i-Catcher system lost the signal from the overheated camera.
The video begins shortly before the club locked up. This shows you the time-span between then and the fire becoming noticeable.
