This paper investigates the effect of fire on ferrocement sandwich panels. The experimental program consisted of fabricating and testing nine panels (400X400x30 mm in dimensions). The variables were type and number of mesh and Styrophoam content. A special arrangement was designed to create the effect of fire on panels. Test results showed that ferrocement panels have an endurance of fire when compared to control panels which may provide a desired protection to fire. In-spite-of wire mesh cracks, in plane cracks occurred when more volume fraction of mesh included. Whereas Styrophoam content affected the number of in-plane cracks. Plastic wire mesh had no significant effect on the wire mesh-induced cracks
