I am doing a job in New Jersey and I am completely finished and passed final electrical inspection. The fire marshall is asking for a heat sensor in the space under the house that is unfinished with nothing in the space but dirt. Does anyone
know where I can find this in the code book or is this something the fire marshall has jurisdiction??

This sounds like a local thing. I would ask him for a reference.

You kind of have to go along with the Fire Marshall's orders in commercial work but i had no idea that they meddle in residential jobs, homes in particular. Did the Fire Marshall actually come to the house for inspection?

Can you find a heat detector rated for the damp / dirty environment? Dirt floor might translate into wet / damp. I am sure they make one but it probably cost $$. Does it have to be tied into the smoke detectors?
