Another part of preventing fires is by fire investigations. By determining the cause and origin of a fire, the Fire/Rescue Division can better educate and protect the public from the dangers of fire and possibly prevent repeat occurances through public education.

If a fire is determined to be suspicious or the result of arson, a full investigation is done by certified fire scene investigators to determine the circumstances surrounding the fire and to work through the courts to bring the fire setter to justice.

Any information concerning suspicious fires should be reported to the Catawba County Fire/Rescue Division by calling 828-465-8238. After hours call 828-464-3112 (Communications Center).
