Fire and Explosion Investigation and Analysis
Available from REI - Fire Investigation and Forensic Engineering

This is done to determine whether or not it is a viable ignition mechanism and whether or not it is the likely cause of a fire. The following is a list of some exemplar items that REI staff regularly evaluate:
Heaters and Furnaces, electric and gas
Washers and Dryers
Air Conditioning Units
Commercial Sign Equipment, including high voltage neon
