Fire Cause Investigation
Oregon statute requires the investigation of all fires to determine the origin, cause, and other factors that may have contributed to ignition and growth. The resulting data is used to identify trends, develop public education programs, identify product deficiencies, and to determine whether fire was the result of criminal activity.
A qualified investigator is available 24 / 7 to respond to fire scenes, investigate the cause and other factors, and work with the suppression crews, law enforcement, insurance companies, and private investigators.
