Dusty The Fire Investigator

When I read this story, I knew I had to share it. For all of you animal lovers, here is a great Swiss Info story to read.

The city of Neuchetel has a new fire investigator, of the 4 legged kind. A for year old springer spaniel named Dusty is on the job investigating fires in Switzerland these days. Dusty's photo courtesy of keystone.

Dusty is a well needed addition to the fire force at this time because he has the ability to detect fire accelerants such as gasoline more accurately and quicker than what the latest technologies can do today.

The popularity has grown enough to introduce fire investigation dogs in other cantons as well. Currently Soluthurn and Schwyz now have fire dogs and Bern and Vaud have two in training.
