Apartment Fire Scene

Most of the reported fires in apartments are accidental and caused by cooking-related items/ activities. Other frequent fire starters are burning candles, electrical or equipment malfunctions, and smoking. For these reasons, there are factors to watch out for and to be mindful about our actions. It is also time-saving to have a ready-made and editable template of the fire scene scheme. These diagrams are used to perform a full investigation report.

Apartment Fire Investigation

  • Review the report, diagram, and photographs of the fire scene.
  • Make interviews with witnesses.
  • Get a scheme of the building construction.
  • Talk to other residents of the apartment complex and check the apartments.
  • Collect evidence and send materials for laboratory testing.
  • Study fire codes and laws.
  • Check the fire escapes, fire extinguishers, sprinklers, alarms, and smoke detectors.

Factors of a fire

For a fire to occur, three vital components must be present: a fuel source, an oxidant (O2), and a sufficient amount of energy in the form of heat. Together these make up the fire triangle. A fourth factor can also be described – a self-sustaining chemical chain reaction – to produce the fire tetrahedron.
