Fun Fact: One of the most interesting investigations I've worked on was a fire in a small village near Albuquerque called Los Ranchos de Albuquerque. A small fire started in a workshop and traveled about 100 yards to a residence that was heavily damaged. There was almost no damage between the workshop and house. Turned out that cotton from cottonwood trees caught fire and it went to the house extremely quickly leaving almost no evidence.

Fun Fact: One of the most interesting investigations I've worked on was a two-level brick building that had water damage from a tap leak, with two side walls failing and falling outwards. The owner kept two side walls from falling outward by using lots of wire strands tied together. Once I inspected it, I evacuated the building ASAP and called a local council. The building was demolished. I provided evidence that the leak caused by the unrepaired leak destroyed the building.
