    Summary: 
    The Eighth Edition of Kirk’s Fire Investigation is included in required and supplemental fire investigation professional training and certification programs by the National Fire Academy, the International Association of Arson Investigators (IAAI), and the National Association of Fire Investigators (NAFI). This text blends both academic information for the student and real-world applications for the practicing fire safety professional to become the best in their field.
    Kirk's Fire Investigation is the leading Fire Investigation textbook on the market. With today’s fire investigators being held to higher standards than ever before, it’s crucial that they gain a thorough understanding of fire protection and investigation engineering concepts, technology, and field analysis. The Eighth Edition of Kirk’s Fire Investigation blends the Seventh Edition of Kirk’s with the Third Edition of Forensic Fire Scene Reconstruction to help investigators bring their knowledge and skills to the next level. Written to the model FESHE curriculum, it takes readers through the entire fire investigation process, from evaluating a fire scene to writing reports and providing testimony—all while incorporating updated NFPA 921 and 1033 guidelines and peer-reviewed, widely cited expert treatise.
    The new edition covers engineering calculations and fire modeling, and features even more in-depth case studies that provide real-world examples. Specialized topic areas include use of scanning and panoramic photography, preparation of comprehensive reports, the ignition matrix, expert testimony, and computer modeling and laser imaging. Retaining its hallmark systematic approach to fire scene investigation and reconstruction, the Eighth Edition is written to help all investigators find the right answers for the right reasons.
