The Fire Investigation division assures the proper investigation of fires throughout the city. The Fire Marshal investigates all fires that occur in the city.
At all hours of the day and night, investigators respond to fires involving:
- Bodily injury
- Incendiary or fires of suspicious nature
- Fire of unknown cause
- Working structure fires incidents
- Any time necessary
All major fire losses are thoroughly investigated. The Fire Marshal and Deputy Fire Marshals work closely with the Police Department, the Federal Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms, the FBI, state fire marshals, and many different insurance companies to track down and prosecute arsonists.
