Nessie, the Orlando Fire Department’s arson-detecting dog, retrieved kudos this month when she helped investigators crack an arson case in Orange County.

It was a first for the 3-year-old canine, who has been with the agency since April. Nessie, who is trained to detect fire-starting substances, was called Feb. 7 to search a house on Cattail Court that suffered “extensive damage” in a fire the night before.

Her powerful nose alerted detectives to areas around the home where fire accelerants were present, Cpt. Jason Herrman of the Bureau of Fire, Arson and Explosives said in an email to the Fire Department Feb. 8, commending the department for Nessie’s work.

The Orlando Fire Department ' s newest arson dog is credited with helping investigators solve its first arson case .

- At the Orlando Fire Department , firefighters are using a new tool to investigate possible arson cases -- one that' s also going to save time, money and resources. Fresh off a month-long training program in New Hampshire with Lt. Revoldt, Nessie ' s job is to sniff her way to what started a fire .

"Nessie was instrumental in assisting detectives in locating multiple areas of origin within the severely damaged home,” he said.

Her detective work helped determine the fire wasn’t accidental.

The homeowner, who family members believed was inside the home during the fire, was found later by detectives at a nearby hospital, where he admitted to pouring flammable liquid inside the house and lighting it with a match, according to Herrman.

“[T]his confession matched where Nessie led detectives to believe an area of origin was present,” Herrman said.

Nessie has sniffed out other fire scenes, but “this is the first one where her contribution has led to a result of charges against someone,” Fire Department spokeswoman Ashley Papagni said.

The Anaheim Fire & Rescue Department had responded to a residential fire when they found a vehicle parked too close to a hydrant. The department later tweeted photos of a hose running through the smashed-out back passenger windows of the car, which was parked along a curb painted a stark red. “Ever wonder what happens when a car is parked in front of a fire hydrant and a fire breaks out?” the tweet reads.
