In this paper, a two-dimensional cellular automata model presented to simulate pedestrians evacuation in fire spreading conditions.In this proposed model, the movement of pedestrians is represented as “chaotic”, mimicking panic egress behaviors during a fire evacuation.This model includes a fire circular front shape based on the spiral movement technique. Simulation results show that this model can be used to predict the number of pedestrians who have evacuated safely or have been killed.
