Our Community Risk Reduction Division has an investigation team made up of personnel who are California State Certified as Fire Investigators.
All fires are investigated to determine origin and cause. If a fire cause is determined to be intentional or suspicious, the Fire Investigator will work together with local law enforcement personnel to complete the investigation.
District Fire Investigators gather evidence and conduct interviews concerning fires. The information and evidence collected is analyzed to determine a fire's origin and cause. Fire Investigators must maintain and file detailed reports on each investigation conducted.
