Summary
Fire prevention and protection are important factors in maintaining the supremacy of cotton in the firber market. The economic losses from property damage and the losses of production time from fires in the cotton gin industry have been excessive. The influence of gin fires on the cost of supplying fiber to cotton mills at home and abroad becomes apparent. The purpose of this study is to provide information about these costs that may aid in reducing them
