Private Investigator Hired After Recent Fire

It is reported that the parents of one of the five people who died in a recent house fire in Rhode Island have asked a judge to allow a private investigator they have hired access to the property. They also requested the documents associated with the blaze and copies of the 911 recordings.

A lawyer is reported as saying that private investigations often differ in “scope” to public investigations. Fire officials are investigating the cause of the early morning fire they have said started in the space between the first-floor ceiling and the second floor. It could be weeks before a cause is determined, though they do not think the blaze was suspicious.
