The Clinton Fire Department (CFD) has several arson investigators on the Department. Due to this great asset following a fire, one of our investigators will do an investigation to determine the cause of the fire. We also work along side the Iowa State Fire Marshal, Clinton Police Department and insurance company investigators to determine the cause.

To be an arson investigator, you go through an aggressive two week course where you will learn to read burn patterns, how fire acts, different types of accelerant, how to properly investigate a fire and much, much more!
