    Abstract

    The methods and techniques of fire investigation are reviewed. They are shown to be useful, but with limitations. The mere presence of a plausible ignition source around the point of origin of a fire is insufficient to establish that source as the cause. Examples are given to show the difficulty of eliminating all causes but one. Particular attention is given to electrical evidence such as arcing.
