The Fire Marshal's Statement

When covering a fire, always get a statement from the fire marshal first. The fire marshal is a reliable source for official information about a fire, including the cause of the fire, the damages, any loss of life and how fire fighters battled the blaze.

Listen carefully to what the fire marshal says, and ask follow-up questions as needed. Take good notes.
