Plan drawings of a fire scene are a valuable tool both for the reader of an origin and cause report as well as the fire investigator. Documenting a fire scene through plan drawings, in addition to photographs and videotape, provides an accurate visual representation of the fire incident.

Plan drawings provide a supplemental image to an oral or written report and are a valuable visual tool which assist the fire investigator when interviewing witnesses.

Detailed plan drawings provide visual information including:

  • Site plans
  • Detailed floor plans
  • Pre-fire contents diagrams
  • Area of origin
  • Flame spread damage and flame spread progression details
  • Location of physical evidence removed from the scene

Should a fire loss claim proceed to trial, plan drawings enable a judge and jury to better understand the evidence being presented in court.

Upon request we are also able to provide an animated computer generated 3-D version of our drawings which walks the viewer through each compartment of the structure in a video-like format.

Due to legal considerations the below sample drawings do not depict actual fire scenes.
