Fire Origin and Cause Investigations

When a structure is damaged by fire, rely on our team of certified fire investigators to uncover the clues that tell the story of what happened.

We thoroughly understand the intricacies of fire and explosions. Our forensic experts are IAAI-CFI®-certified with years of experience and specialized training to manage a fire investigation, from the initial scene evaluation through expert witness testimony in the courtroom. When working with American Structurepoint, you’ll always have a professional expert you can trust to find the answers and explain them clearly.

We take a systematic approach to determining fire origin and cause, using scientific standards established by the National Fire Protection Association NFPA 921, Guide for Fire and Explosion Investigations. You can depend on our investigators’ wealth of experience and expertise to confidently analyze any setting - residential, commercial, industrial, vehicular, or agricultural.

We interpret burn patterns, identify fuel sources, and collect and evaluate evidence to provide you with the information you need to make informed decisions. Our fire inspectors research and apply any relevant codes related to fire protection, construction, electrical systems, and fuel gas systems to determine responsibility and liability. Evidence is stored and evaluated in our own dedicated facility where we also host multi-party evidence examinations. We provide you with detailed, yet easy-to-understand reports. Our certified fire investigators also can serve as expert witnesses during litigation.
