The Franklin Fire Department is responsible for conducting investigations to determine the origin and cause of fires occurring in the city.
Investigations are performed by Certified Fire and Explosion Investigators who work closely with detectives from the Franklin Police Department when there is reason to believe a fire is the result of arson.
Four investigators have achieved the IAAI-CFI designation and are among only 64 in Tennessee to have this certification.
If you have information about a fire, you could earn a reward of up to $1,500 offered by the Tennessee Advisory Committee on Arson and the Tennessee State Fire Marshal's Office. The Tennessee Arson Hotline number is 1-800-762-3017.
