Fire Research & Technology, LLC provides marine fire & explosion investigations of all seaworthy vessels including motor boats, sailing vessels, yachts, and ships. Fires occurring in marine environments present the fire investigator with unique challenges. The marine environment presents challenges related to safety hazards, scene documentation, evidence contamination and transportation of evidence. A scene can sink or become partially submerged, fire patterns and evidence can be lost, contaminated, or spoliated. Our investigators are trained to anticipate and manage such challenges.
