§ 204-d. Duties of the fire chief. The fire chief of any fire
department or company shall, in addition to any other duties assigned to
him by law or contract, to the extent reasonably possible determine or

or explosion is of incendiary or suspicious origin. For all fires that
are suspected to have been ignited by a cigarette, within fourteen days
after completing the investigation into such fire, the fire chief shall

detailing, to the extent possible: (a) the specific brand and style of
the cigarette suspected of having ignited such fire; (b) whether the
cigarette package was marked as required by subdivision six of section
