Process of Elimination

The use of the process of elimination in the determination of a fire cause is a topic that has generated significant discussion and controversy in the fire investigation profession. In this program, Rodney J. Pevytoe (IAAI Past President), Randy Watson (Chair, NFPA 921 Committee), and Bill LeMire (Attorney) introduce the concept of the process of elimination, explain how negative corpus has evolved in NFPA 921, expand on the proper and improper uses of the process of elimination, and examine two court decisions where the process of elimination was a key element (Somnis v. Country Mutual and State of Wisconsin v. Joseph A. Awe).
