NFPA 921 Guidelines Instrumental in Aiding Fire Investigation Outcomes

Blaze Fire Investigation is now known as Anderson Engineering. (updated 6/28/17)

In-depth knowledge of the NFPA 921 guide, regarding notification to interested parties in a fire investigation, is critical to establishing a potential path to recovery for our clients. In addition to determining cause of the fire, it is our goal to provide notice to the parties so that those involved are only those that are necessary, and that the fire scene is preserved as much as possible to allow everyone equal opportunity to participate in the investigation. Blaze Fire Investigation is able to expertly incorporate NFPA 921 with a combination of the expert skills of our on-site investigators and the availability of forensic engineering consulting through colleagues at Anderson Engineering of New Prague, Inc.

Determining origin - interviewing

Fire scenes come in all conditions, from very light damage to total destruction. Whatever the scene, our investigators know that the people involved can be quite upset and even traumatized by what has happened. As our investigators make contact with these people as they enter a scene, they reassure them about the purpose of the investigation, and with their forthright and nonthreatening manner, open the door to honest dialogue.

Blaze Fire Investigators use well-honed interviewing skills to ask the right questions that will uncover facts that move the investigation along. The questioning strategy might include reconstructing a visual of the objects in the scene. It could include a history of renovations or repairs that have been made to the property. Questions directed at behaviors and actions that occurred prior to the fire are very important to identifying potential causes of a fire.

Determining origin - forensics

As they sift through debris at a fire scene at the beginning of an investigation, Blaze Fire Investigators balance their goal of determining origin with the need to preserve evidence if a joint scene is required. This is where connections with forensic engineers at Anderson Engineering of New Prague, Inc. provide Blaze Fire with resources that other investigation companies do not have readily available. At any time, our investigators can consult with an electrical or mechanical engineer to better identify products and systems that may be involved.

Blaze Fire Determined Origin and Cause Without Joint Investigation

Blaze Fire Investigation is now known as Anderson Engineering. (updated 6/28/17)

CASE STUDYSITUATION:

A fire started in the kitchen of a restaurant. Many artifacts were present that could possibly start a fire including food warmers, microwaves, gas oven and stove, the building wiring system, and light fixtures. A fire suppression system was also in place and may or may not have functioned as designed. Calling in representatives for all of these appliances and electrical systems would be costly and may not be necessary. Was it possible to determine the cause of the fire without destruction of artifacts in the event that a joint scene investigation is warranted?

OUR INVESTIGATION:

An electrical engineer from our parent company, Anderson Engineering, was called in to provide additional forensic expertise to examine the debris and artifacts. Working in tandem, the fire investigator and the electrical engineer went through the debris. The Fire Department had examined building components, pieces of wiring and light fixtures as part of their investigation and created a separate artifact pile. In conjunction with a fire suppression expert, the fire investigator and electrical engineer concluded that the fire suppression system did not malfunction. The appliances were examined one by one.

The gas stove had the remains of a gray melted plastic material on it. Through interviews with the restaurant staff, it was determined that at the end of the day, the cook routinely used a plastic bussing bucket to carry soap and water to the griddle for cleaning. The bucket was usually set on the gas stove beside the griddle during cleaning. The pilot light provided a continual source of heat even when the burners were not lit.

The cause of the fire was the plastic bussing bucket that was left on the stove. The water evaporated and the plastic came to combustible temperature and ignited.
