A wildfire can devastate local landscapes and cost people their homes, their livelihoods, and even their lives. Fire investigators must piece together the details of the event, determine the cause of the fire, and assess liability. Most fires are preventable, as it only takes a single spark to create a raging wildfire. A knowledgeable expert witness can assess the damage and provide valuable perspective on the circumstances, the value of the devastation, and the likely cause. It is important to find the best wildfire experts to make the most informed judgments.
