SPARTANBURG, S.C. (FOX Carolina) -- The Spartanburg Fire Department has gained a new recruit!

'Phoenix' will be trained as an accelerate detection canine, officials posted. 

She will be used to help find any evidence of flammable hydrocarbons such as gasoline, during a fire investigation investigators use that to determine whether a fire is arson.
