Electrical Fires

Fire Origin and Cause

According to the NFPA, fires in the United States in 2022 resulted in roughly 3,800 fatalities, more than three times as many injuries, and an estimated $18 billion in direct property loss.

With the staggering potential risks to life and property, the cause of every fire and explosion must be carefully investigated. Our teams of fire forensics experts have the knowledge required to conduct and manage complex fire investigations. We have the experience needed to steer the investigation from the initial site inspection through expert courtroom presentations.

Multidisciplinary Fire and Explosion Investigation Experts

Our investigations are multidisciplinary. We draw on expertise in fire science, engineering, and chemistry to find the cause, and we communicate our findings in a clear, concise manner that can be readily understood by non-technical individuals. To aid in that process, some of our investigators use 3D scans through Matterport to provide quick answers and produce models for scene documentation and evidence. With this technology, you'll get a real-time experience review of a scene without ever needing to leave your desk.
