Electrical Fires


An Electrical Fire is defined as "any fire involving some type of electrical failure or malfunction." According to the U.S. Fire Administration's National Fire Incident Reporting System, over half of fires reported from 2007-11 involved an electrical failure or malfunction of some kind. 

This includes failures to equipment used for electrical distribution, lightning or ignition. Appliances also contribute to a significant portion of electrical fire-related losses.

Envista electrical engineers and fire investigators have the experience needed to steer the investigation from the initial site inspection through expert courtroom presentations. Our investigations are multidisciplinary; we draw upon expertise in fire science, engineering, and chemistry to find the cause, and we communicate our findings in a clear, concise manner that can be readily understood by non-technical individuals. 

If you need to understand the cause of a fire or explosion, contact the Electrical Engineering group at Envista by calling +1 (847) 559-3000.
