Burn Patterns

Logo for Burn Patterns
Jim Pharr explores burn patterns. A burn pattern has a line of demarcation where charred materials are very close to the uncharred materials, and they have a very clear pattern. An investigator must prove what caused the irregular burn pattern – and it’s not always an ignitable liquid.
