It is to use many plastic materials as living essential goods. But when the fire is happened, owing to noxious gases, many men should be injured. Therefore as the noxious gases are measured by open path FT-IR spectrometer as remote monitoring, the demage of men could be minimized. Such this system consists of a Fourier transform spectrometer and infrared lamp fitted to long length. The study was to do the quantitative analysis on CO, $NO_2$, HCl, HF gas by remote monitoring open path FT-IR spectrometer. And the method of it should use MLR (multiple linearity regression) method. As result, It was confirmed to be more than 0.95 as $R^2$ of MLR. And then Urethane and PVC of plastic materials selected was burned, the concentration of polluted gases were measured by remote monitoring method.
