In this paper, we proposed a virtual reality based multi-user fire evacuation simulation system. As the traditional fire evacuation simulation in practical situation needs lots of props and may not do well in the reduction of scene, our system provides high simulation and well sense of immediacy by using virtual reality. In order to improve the facticity of our system, we mentioned a multi-user ways by using the Client/Server which promote multiple users to join in the same scene of fire evacuation simulation. The users can see and interact with each other. With the will to generalize our system to public, we designed our system based on Google Cardboard and Android platform. So the system can be widely used in many places such as schools and offices, bringing a more immersive and well-planned fire evacuation simulation. After considering several fire simulation scene, we decided to choose the situation which happens in a library of campus. In the system, we will try to provide a vivid fire scene with simplified dynamic fire and smoke model based on time-control. The users must try to avoid getting into fire or smoke, and try to make their ways to exclusive from the library. After that, we believe the users will get an impressive fire evacuation experience.
