Fire Cause & Origin / Explosion Investigation


Comments Off on Fire Cause & Origin / Explosion Investigation Featured Services

Determination of fire cause and origin is a highly involved process. Our office understands the importance of conducting a proper scene inspection, involving documented evidence collection/extraction. We use state-of-the-art fire investigation techniques, and often incorporate testing to validate hypotheses.  Our fire investigators understand and investigate both structural and vehicular fires, and have a history of successful cause and origin determination.

A typical investigation will include the following:

  • Scene investigation
  • Review and analysis of case related investigations
  • Scene photography
  • Evidence preservation, recognition, documentation
  • Identification and collection of data


The amount of flammables on a vehicle such as this city bus can be surprising.  A hydraulic hose failure, for example, can lead to the release of flammable oil, and ultimately the destruction of the vehicle.
