Electrical Fire Origin and Cause

Overview

Fire investigators can find the point of origin and cause, but only a knowledgeable electrical engineer can pinpoint the point of failure within electrical components.

In residential, commercial and industrial as well as vehicle fires, electrical systems are often reported as the probable cause of the fire. Recent maintenance activities or improper equipment use can sometimes lead to fires. Our electrical engineers have extensive experience in pinpointing the exact cause of fires and are frequently called upon to prove or disprove those assertions.
