Fire Investigation 101: A Forensic Expert’s Process & Mentality

September 23, 2020

Careless smoking?!” the adjuster exclaimed, reading through a forensic investigation report. “But the insured told me he doesn’t smoke!”  

Adjusters often call us in shock, wondering how we were able to look at a burnt pile of rubble and determine the cause of a fire so decisively. The truth is, a Forensic Expert’s most valuable tool isn’t their investigative intuition, but rather, their adherence to a strict investigative process called “The Scientific Method”. 

Join us as we take you through the steps of a fire and explosion investigation using a real-life case study. Get a glimpse inside the mind of a forensic investigator and learn how they use the scientific method to navigate through a burnt pile of rubble to find the needle in the haystack.
