    Arson investigations are conducted to determine the cause of a fire and ensure the responsible party is held accountable. Arson investigators are usually retired fire fighters or trained professionals with in-depth knowledge about types of fuel, how each fuel ignites and accelerates, and the impact each fuel has on the development of a fire.   First, let's start with basic physics and chemistry. This is the fire tetrahedron. You may have learned about the "fire triangle" in the past, but fire science decided that this represents fire better. Well, what is "fire", anyway? This is what th.

    Arson. Arson is the criminal setting of a fire to commit at least vandalism and at worst murder or even mass murder. Arson is difficult to investigate for three main reasons: The arsonist can plan out the arson well in advance and bring all the tools needed to commit the act with him/her. The arsonist does not need to be present at the time of. ATF's CFI Program has taken fire investigation and analysis beyond a discipline based on experience and has applied scientific and engineering technology. Through computer software programs, these agents can use mathematical equations to describe the chemical and physical behavior of fire.

In an investigation of a fire where arson is suspected the investigator starts the interviewing of witness and fire fighters immediately (Kennedy, ). It is essential for the investigator to interview the fire fighters who were the first to arrive at the fire and those who fought the fire.

Fire will often destroy evidence of arson. Fire & Arson Investigator (F&AI), is the journal of the International Association of Arson Investigators (IAAI) which is published quarterly – January, April, July and October. F&AI welcomes well-researched and well-documented submissions on all aspects of fire investigation.

F&AI reserves the right to accept or reject any article submitted for publication. Arson and explosives investigation is quite similar to crime scene investigation; it involves the use of an investigator along with a laboratory analyst to help perform analysis of chemical data on fire and explosive debris crime scene investigation.

The foremost distinction between an arson/explosive investigation and a criminal one is to determine if an actual crime took place or not.• The arson investigator needs to begin examining a fire scene for signs of arson as soon as the fire has been extinguished.
