Hi guys I'm sorry for my noob question, I'm still new at using python opencv and but i am already started reading its document. my question is i want to detect fire and smoke but i am very confuse right now if what should i use for the camera to detect a fire or smoke in any size, should i use haar cascade and train a multiple of negative and positive of flame or should i just use a color oscillation to detect, since we all know fire and smoke can show up at any size. i would like to know your opinion so i can the study right method to implement on my project, thanks a lot and I apologize.

For what it's worth, you could always look for pure white splotches on the image, where the brightness of the fire overwhelms the camera. Too much smoke? Look for black splotches.
