(Hall 1998, pp 98)Tentative location: Proper examination of the scene is done to get the proper information and guessing what could be happened there.

(Nolan 1998, pp 45)Asking bystanders: The people who watch the scene can better explain that what has actually happened. Questioning wit eyewitnesses can reveal many aspects and the potential danger and the degree of the danger. Collapse Building During and Post Fire Fighting Operation: Symptoms: Falling of part or stones of buildings: There are different symptoms of collapse buildings.
