    Abstract

    Fragments recovered from the burned wreckage of a gasoline truck and thought to be parts of teeth were confirmed as such after they were examined with a scanning electron microscope. The appearance of the fragments was compared with previously published descriptions of teeth which had been incinerated under laboratory conditions and also examined by scanning electron microscopy.
