Every year New Zealand suffers millions of dollars of damage and loss from fires that devastate homes, businesses, farmland and forestry. But what happens after the smoke clears and the embers fade? A team of highly trained specialists uses the science and art of fire investigation to determine where it started, what the cause was and how it can be further prevented. Fire Scene Investigation tracks the investigation from the initial call-out through to determination of origin and cause, revealing the human cost of fires – the loss of homes, livelihoods and life at the hands of one of the world’s most powerful forces.
