Fire Investigators

Work Environment

There is no average workday for investigators. They may spend days at a time in the field conducting scene surveys and interviewing involved parties and then spend the next several days or weeks in the office preparing the reports. Whenever a suspicious fire occurs, they must be ready to jump into action—whether at night, on weekends, or during a holiday. Fire scenes can be very dangerous and unhealthy as a result of unstable structures, smoke, fumes, or hot spots that need to be re-extinguished.
