CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

"Accelerant Detection Canines - Sniffing out Arson" is the theme for 2015's National Arson Awareness Week.

In honor of the week, the state fire marshal and the Iowa DPS will host a training course for detecting arson.

Iowa has three accelerant detection K-9 handlers -- one in the state fire marshal's office, one in the Cedar Rapids fire department, the other in Davenport.
