My name is Arthur B. Canaii, Jr. I am a Deputy Inspector III from the Virgin Islands Fire Service on the island of St. Croix. I am looking for some language that specifically speaks about the amount of spacing for a junkyard or salvage yard for firefighting, with regard to car spacing. In fire behavior when a combustible is too close, fire spread radiates. A junkyard that I have inspected has no spacing in between the cars. Is there any code or law that enforces my desired intent?
My intent is to provide adequate firefighting spacing between cars in the event of a fire.
