The Fire Marshal’s Office coordinates investigations with the Alpharetta Fire Marshal, the Milton Police and other local, regional and federal investigative agencies.
Every fire is investigated for origin and cause. This allows us to determine appropriate life safety measures that may need to be taken.
Additionally, investigations are used to pursue criminal acts such as arson, incidents involving incendiary devices (e.g. bombs, Molotov cocktails) and the like.
Many investigators are also certified peace officers and are therefore capable of making arrests, serving warrants and testifying in court regarding fire-related criminal activity.
You may contact the Milton Fire Marshal with any questions or concerns regarding fire-related investigations. Additionally, you can find further information on the US Fire Administrations web site.
