Most FD's simply aren't budgeted for detailed forensics. I've stood by nothing more than smoking cellar holes in my past, to which the chief(s) would claim 'electrical orgin' , simply due to nobody being home.

It's either that, or suspicious orgin, then the acelerant sniffer appears

I don't see how an all-afci society is going to have any of that change....

Especially when arc faults cause only a small bit of electrical fires


I still want to see the NEC have a testing section for new installations.
