This story from WWLTV does a great job of illustrating the importance of compartmentalizing a building for fire protection.  It focuses on the firestopping at the new MSY airport in New Orleans, and discusses the potential results of voids that are not code-compliant.  Some of the same effects could apply to non-compliant fire doors.  It’s not often that a news report dedicates 10+ minutes to fire protection, so check it out!

Thank you to Mark Berger of Securitech for sending me the link to this news report!
