K-9 Arson Unit

MEET FIRE K9 EMBER

Ember is a one-year-old Red Fox Lab who assists the Gloucester County Fire Marshal in arson investigations.

After 16 weeks of training, Ember is ready to find evidence of suspected arson crime.  She is trained on accelerants including gasoline, diesel fuel, kerosene, turpentine, butane and various other flammable solvents including household things like lighter fluid and nail polish remover.

When Ember enters the fire scene, she'll sniff out the whole area and then she'll sit a the exact spot an accelerant was poured.
