Accidental Fire Causes INTRODUCTION The determination of the cause of any fire requires the clear identification of those conditions necessary for the fire to have occurred. These conditions include, but are not limited to, the device or equipment involved, the presence of a competent ignition source, the type and form of the material first ignited, and the circumstances or actions that brought all the factors together.

Because of the power that is transmitted, lightning is considered a separate form of heat in this course. Mechanical Heat Energy Mechanical heat energy also takes three basic forms. The first is friction heat. This is the heat from direct mechanical contact between moving objects, such as rubbing sticks together to make fire. Another form of mechanical heat energy is friction sparks. The best examples of this type are a grinding wheel or the brakes on a railroad train. The third form is the heat of compression.

A competent source of ignition requires sufficient temperature and energy and contact with the first fuel ignited long enough to raise it to its ignition temperature. The ignition process involves generation, transmission, and heating. Once the area or point of origin is identified, the investigator must identify the heat-producing device, substance, or circumstance that could have resulted in ignition. Heat-producing appliances can include heating equipment, appliances, and lighting equipment.
