Investigations

We currently have one certified Fire Cause and Origin Investigator and four Arson Investigators on our staff.  An Arson Investigator is certified in Fire Cause and Origin Investigation and is also a licensed Texas Peace Officer. By law, all fires must be investigated for cause and origin.  This is a key component to fire prevention because identifying a common cause, such as a faulty vehicle or appliance, can prevent future fires.  All findings are tracked through the National Fire Incident Reporting System (NFIRS).  If arson is the suspected cause of the fire we call on the Denton County Arson Task Force for further investigation.
