Term of the week:

Clean burn

a fire pattern on a non-combustible surface where soot deposits have been burned away by direct flame contact or intense radiant heat, leaving a "clean" area bordered by sooty stains. The line of demarcation between the clean burn and the sooty surrounding area may assist the investigator in determining how the fire spread and where the origin might have been.

For more information on this term, see the interFIRE VR Resource File article: Examples of Fire Patterns: "Clean Burn"
