If there is a dispute about the origin of a fire, or a defendant’s proximity to an incident, fire investigation analysis can be crucial in determining the outcome of a case.

How can we help?

Aequitas Expert Witness Services Ltd has vast experience in the following disciplines:

  • Reviewing existing analyses
  • Identifying the seat (origin) of a fire
  • Identifying flammable liquids
  • Identifying substances that may have been mistaken for flammable liquids
  • Interpretation of fire or flash damage on clothing seized from suspects, especially where petrol has been involved
  • Advising on the veracity and accuracy of fire investigation reports – including the likely progression and spread of a fire and the use (or lack thereof) of accelerants
  • Reviewing the viability of devices designed to act as petrol bombs or ‘Molotov cocktails’
  • Reviewing whether a fuel source is red diesel fuel (and thus relevant to customs prosecutions for fraud)
