This paper aims to facilitate the use of machine learning to carry out supervised classification/regression tasks for time series data in fire research. Specifically, a feature engineering tool, FAST (Feature extrAction and Selection for Time-series), is developed. Using hypothesis test method together with principal component analysis, relevant features with high significance to the prediction are selected. A study case is presented for the use of FAST. Results demonstrate the importance of obtaining effective features and its potential benefits. It is expected that the feature engineering tool can help scientists and engineers in the fire research community develop accurate machine learning based models.
