Kent Grier Fire Investigations to move to Wingate Plaza

WICHITA — Only three years ago, Kent Grier was still working out of his house after starting Kent Grier Fire Investigations a couple of years before that.

Then he moved to 824 W. 13th in Riverside, but now he's outgrown that space, too.

"The longer you do it, the more exposure you get," Grier says of his business.

The new KGFI space will be at Waco and Murdock at Wingate Plaza.

Grier spent 23 years with the Wichita Fire Department, six as a firefighter and 17 in the arson unit.

After working as an investigator for a couple of other companies here and in Denver, Grier decided to open his own shop.

Insurance companies and law firms are typically his clients.

Grier says it takes several years to grow a business like his.

"It's hard to advertise because you don't just do radio for my type of work or newspapers," he says.
