Fire & Explosion


Firensics is an independent forensic investigation provider with 12 years of experience in fire and explosion investigation. We provide expert origin and cause investigations to insurers, law firms, corporations and individuals.

Our Services

A longstanding misconception is that fires and explosions destroy everything. However, this is rarely the case, and from a forensic perspective, a fire will generally create its own evidence by burning itself into a scene. A reputable forensic fire investigator will identify and understand these fire patterns, use them to determine where the fire originated, and then establish how and why the fire occurred.


A thermal incident can result in a total property or dollar loss, which can significantly impact individuals, families and businesses. We are dedicated to uncovering the origin and cause of a fire to assist with providing closure to those impacted.
