Fire InvestigationWhen CSI Central Valley reconstructs a fire, each reconstruction typically involves a fire scene examination and documentation, the gathering of observational information from firefighters and eyewitnesses, and a fire origin & cause determination.

With 45 years combined experience, we focus on the technical aspects of how and why a fire occurred. A determination that a fire has been set intentionally results only from the careful consideration of supporting evidence.

Determinations of fire origin and cause are derived from extensive experience and based upon technological realities, engineering principles, and proven science.
