The Fire Investigation Unit is charged with determining the cause and origin of all suspicious fires.

Arson reports are also produced on all non-suspicious fires for insurance reporting reasons. One arson investigator is on call 24-hours a day.

If you have information regarding a fire or want to report suspicious activity, please call our Arson Hotline at 865-637-1386.
