it is important to find out about the car which has been damaged in the accident. When investigating car fire it becomes important to get to know the make and the material of the car.

In addition to this the flame spreads quickly when the engine is hot.

Due to this the evidence gets scattered everywhere and the crime scene gets compromised. The investigators find the clues to prepare the entire picture. Mostly, the fire starts in the engine compartment and spreads through the other parts.



Different types of crime scenes require different method of collecting evidence. There are numerous causes of fire break out. Oil, gasoline or antifreeze anything can start the fire to spread through the body of the car. Each one of the scenes requires different type of evidence collecting methods.

After observing the scene the process of evidence collection begins. Photographing the scene is an important way of preserving evidence. Apart from this there are other ways of collecting evidence. Preparing sketches of the crime scene is another method of preserving evidence. Videotaping the crime scene is also an important process of collecting evidence.



While investigating the crime scene it is important to consider several aspects. The weather condition is one of the most essential aspects which every crime scene investigator needs to consider. Once everything is settled and all the evidence is collected, the next job of the investigator is to evaluate the evidence.
