Examples of Proving and Incendiary Fire


Examples of Proving and Incendiary Fire

Logo for Examples of Proving and Incendiary Fire
Jim Pharr examines a fire in a small house where three different fires were present. In the house, there were two divisions in the house that left very different results: The front of the house was destroyed, but the back of the house had more clues to investigate. He did not find an ignition source, but there was an ignitable liquid present on all three fires. There was no way that each one was related, but he was able to prove that it was an incendiary fire.
