Request a Fire Report


You can request a fire report, origin and cause report or a photo CD using the Fire Report Request Form. 

​How to request a fire report

  1. Fill out the Fire Report Request Form.
  2. Mail, fax, e-mail, or deliver the form to the Salem Fire Department.

Once the report is complete, it will be mailed to the mailing address you specify on the form.  You can also request that the reports be e-mailed back to you if you are not requesting a photo CD or one is not available.

Please note that depending on the complexity of the incident investigation, fire reports can take several weeks to complete.  Reports will not be released until complete.
