Posted in: More details emerge about anime studio arson attack that killed 33 See in context

The floorplans show a regular internal staircase off to the side and a spiral one in the middle of the floor.

The reports talk about lots of paper, but animators would presumably also use celluloid, which burns/explodes to produce highly toxic fumes. In fact many things, a sofa, any foam insulation in the building, etc will produce toxic fumes if doused in petrol and lit. It is not an eventuality things are designed for. It looks like many of the victims were quickly overcome by fumes when trying to escape.

Think you have a point about combustible materials there, don't know why

It took 1 day to put out a fire

Nobody managed to get o the windows to jump, again maybe due to the panic and speed of the fire

Hope the authorities learn from this.
