    Fires need oxygen. Closing doors helps slow the spread by reducing the ability to suck in air. Kitchens are the most likely room to catch fire. Front doors limit fires to one flat.

    I removed the self closer thingy from the door in my kitchen. So are open plan kitchens illegal in Hong Kong then?
