Fire escape routes are essential from any room in a house. If the windows are fixed, then the ventilating panels would have to be of sufficient size to allow for exiting the room if it is a bedroom. Operable windows can provide a means of egress from a building in the event of a fire. Every room in a residence other than small bathrooms and closets should have two ways out. Blocked exits or inadequate exits have caused many fire deaths.

I am certainly relieved that the burning building from which I escaped had two ways to exit since one way was blocked.
