We have examined the concept of zone modeling as it has been applied to fire problems. The existing models which embody the zone concept are compared in order to ascertain the state-of-the-art in understanding of fire growth and fire spread processes. This review is intended to be a starting point for future modeling efforts and thus the discussion centers around the use of the various submodels.
