Horry County Fire Rescue gave WMBF News an inside look at how they use their arson dog, Summer. Summer is a 4-year-old black lab. She’s been with HCFR for three years. Her job is to sniff out anything that might cause a fire. “She’s sniffing for any hydrocarbon based accelerants, so that would include gasoline, diesel fuel, lighter fluid, camping oil,” her handler and deputy fire investigator James Cyganiewicz said. “Any of the main gasoline based accelerants that people may use to accelerate a fire.”
