How did the fire start? It’s one of the first questions asked when everyone is safe and the flames are out. It’s the job of the fire investigator to identify the cause, origin and other factors contributing to the ignition and growth of a fire. This information can be useful in identifying trends and developing codes and public education programs to prevent future fires and reduce property loss, injuries and death.
