Fire Investigation Handbook from C.H.I.P.S.

Analysis and Interpretation of Fire Scene Evidence
edited by Jose R. Almirall

Analysis and Interpretation of Fire Scene Evidence introduces the techniques that determine the presence of ignitable liquid residues (ILRs) at fire scenes.

Features:

  • Introduces the techniques applied in the examination and interpretation of fire scene evidence
  • Details ASTM consensus standards
  • Compares the effectiveness of canines with that of emerging instrumental field tests
  • Provides guidance in the interpretation of analysis and highlights ways to generate the resulting reports
  • Summarizes recent developments in extraction and analysis that can be used to improve the detection of ILRs
  • Describes quality assurance methods in fire debris analysis
