We Work For You: Lee Wilding and K-9 Shilo

When investigating a fire, the Fresno Fire Department has a unique team to help: Lee Wilding and K-9 Shilo! Shilo is trained to detect ignitable liquids and show Investigator Wilding where they are, which helps determine the cause of a fire and whether arson was involved.

That information leads to closed cases, answers for victims, and arsonists off the street.

“Those arrests, those opportunities to help somebody and be there for people when they need it, those are the parts that I like,” Investigator Wilding said. K-9 Shilo is one of four arson dogs in the state of California.
