Annotation: Noting that there are three aspects to all arson cases -- the crime itself, the investigation, and the trial -- the film focuses on the roles played by both firefighters and law professionals in assembling trial evidence and in presenting evidence during the trial.
Abstract: Points emphasized in the film include the importance of preparing for the trial, handling evidence carefully at the scene of the fire, obtaining reliable witnesses, using expert testimony by an experienced firefighter, and thoroughly investigating all aspects of the case. The film is intended as an important training device for any potential participant in an arson trial: firefighters, fire investigators, district attorneys, and other law enforcement personnel.
