Science Casts Doubt on Arson Convictions
« on: December 09, 2006, 05:16:10 PM »

Thought I'd drop this in here.

It seems now that as the scientific method is applied to long-held rules of thumb about arson investigations, there may be a need to re-examine arson convictions.

For instance, it's long been believed that crazed glass is caused by a hotter-than-normal fire, which tends to be arson. But it's been discovered that crazed glass is more often than not the result of water hitting very hot glass. And flashovers can cause a fire to burn down from the ceiling, not up from the floor.

Interesting article.

Sometimes it takes therapy to put the past behind you. Other times, it takes a 20 gallon trash bag and a couple of cinder blocks.
