Plaintiffs appeal as of right from orders of the trial court granting defendant's motion for summary disposition and motion in limine. On appeal, plaintiffs argue that the trial court erred in granting defendant's summary disposition on plaintiffs' tort claims on the basis of the economic loss doctrine, erred in granting defendant's motion for summary disposition on the basis that plaintiffs failed to provide defendant with reasonable notice pursuant to MCL 440.2607(3)(a), and erred in granting defendant's motion in limine and prohibiting evidence relating to "clinkers."

We affirm in part, reverse in part, and remand for further proceedings consistent with this opinion.

NFPA 921, Guide for Fire and Explosion Investigations plays a fundamental role in fire and explosion investigations. A new edition of NFPA 921 is scheduled to be published in 2014. For years, this document has played a critical role in the training, education and job performance of fire and explosion investigators. It also serves as one of the primary references used by the National Fire Academy to support its fire/arson-related training and education programs. It is imperative that investigators understand the scope, purpose and application of this document, especially since it will be used to judge the quality and thoroughness of their investigations.
The California Conference of Arson Investigators is the oldest and the most active fire and arson investigator's association in the country, with over 1,100 members. CCAI is the only organization that transcends the gap between the public (fire service, law enforcement) and private (i.e. insurance adjusters, private investigators, etc.) sectors. Created in 1954, and incorporated under the laws of the State of California in 1960 as a non-profit corporation, it serves the professional needs of men and women engaged in all aspects of fire and arson investigation. CCAI is Chapter #22 of the International Association of Arson Investigators.
CCAI conducts semi-annual training seminars, using the finest instructors from across the country. The most up to date technical information on fire, fraud, and arson investigation is provided to hundreds of participants. All aspects of fire/arson investigation are covered in training provided to public and private sectors.
CCAI provides regional Roundtable meetings at locations throughout the State of California. The Round Table meetings are the backbone of the organization. Attendees are presented with programs of special interest at these meetings. One of the many benefits of of attending these meetings is the ability to network with local public and private fire investigators to discuss recent fire trends and individual fire cases.
CCAI is proud to be involved in the advancement of fire and arson investigation. Through education and training, CCAI has proven the true value of a professional organization. Through an extremely active membership, this non profit organization has brought together various divergent segments of a diversified profession, and helped to make fire and arson training in California the best and most coordinated, professional training in the nation.
