Urban fire is common in all cities, especially in developing countries, due to more concentrated settlement planning; lack of safety in buildings; increased population growth and poverty.

This research will find out the process of fire and the relationships between urban fire and changes of urban planning to investigate the causes of urban fire and how urban planning plays a role in causes of fire and how can it provide solutions to mitigate urban fire risk.

The research will specifically aim to explore the role of urban planning to prevent and reduce urban fire risk in Mandalay City, Myanmar. There will also be a focus on the role of government and their collaboration with other parties regarding urban fire mitigation solutions and existing knowledge awareness on urban fire disasters.
