When a residential, commercial, or vehicle fire takes place, it’s important for all parties involved to determine the cause by conducting a thorough electrical fire investigation. As soon as arson is eliminated as a possibility, the question turns to whether it originated with a mechanical or electrical failure. Finding out the fire’s origin and cause is vital to all interested parties.
At Dreiym Engineering, we are experienced forensic engineers and certified fire investigators who can conduct fire and explosion investigations to help provide answers. We understand the importance of getting to the scene fast. Sending a fire investigator to the scene right away for initial photographing and scene documentation is critical. Our fire investigators will evaluate the scene and identify all potential subrogation contacts. The more time that goes by, the more the scene can change. Call us and we can get you talking with our fire investigation team and confirm our ability to get to your site as soon as possible. Once there, we meticulously document and photograph the scene for future use on subrogation and litigation support.
We pull all evidence and store it in our secure storage facility located north of Houston, Texas. There with our laboratory facilities, we can later inspect the retained evidence for signs of a failure that could have led to the fire.
We work with attorneys and insurance companies to establish a root cause. Our team of experienced forensic fire investigators can determine the cause of a mechanical or electrical fire/explosion. For most of our residential and commercial matters, we send out an electrical forensic engineer to assess and evaluate any potential electrical sources of ignition.
In the event of an industrial fire or explosion, the corrosion, electrical, and mechanical systems must be evaluated. An unbiased third-party review from certified fire and explosion investigators can help determine the root cause. Contact us to get started.
