At present, the method of detecting fire by convolutional neural network only uses flame or smoke as an indicator of fire occurrence, and such a method is somewhat limited. This article also detects flames and smoke so that it can be alarmed only when smoke or flame is detected. When the smoke and flame are detected at the same time, the credibility of the alarm can be improved. Our experiments show that the proposed network achieves excellent accuracy and speed.
