Explanation:
A- Heavy smoke stains on glass objects REMOTE FROM the point of origin, usually indicate a slow fire build up
B- Light smoke stains on glass objects usually indicate a rapid build-up of the fire, little fire damage and are found CLOSE to the point of origin
C- Small crazing of glass means intense and rapid heat build up and will be found closer to the point of origin
Training Bulletins Arson p-10-11

Explanation:
An alternate method, when tarps are not available or the box fan cannot be hung, is to position the fan inside the contaminated area facing the exhaust opening 6 to 8 feet back and tilted up at an angle of approximately 30 degrees. This positioning will form a seal of air around the exhaust opening preventing churning.
A Note: This will allow clean exterior air to enter the structure and replace the contaminated air.
C Note: When tarps are not used, churning of the interior air occurs, limiting our ability to ventilate the area.
