I had to laugh at the last sentence.
The OP most likely, as others have stated prior, observed a member of that municipality's Arson Unit. Some members go by the title of Cause Investigator, Arson Investigator, Fire Investigation Unit Inspector, etc. Most work a shift schedule that mirrors platoon field personnel, or in some cases a "40-hr" work week, with a rotating duty schedule for call-outs, etc. For many, the case load is significant, and cooperation with mutual aid (fire/LE) agencies in a working relationship is very common and necessary.
