Yup. This actually is a real problem. Happens several times locally.

The motivations differ. Some boredom. Some just like the thrill of the lights and sirens. Some are just pyros. Smallest amount do it for a financial reason.

Fire service fire setters are a danger and a blight on the firefighting profession.

100 are arrested every year. 1,100,000 firefighters are active in the USA as of 2011. Throw the book at him in my opinion.

Tis true, we have a bad apple every now and then in our great fire service.

He brings a black eye to our craft and tarnishes all of us, that strive to make everything better than we found upon arrival.

A) I'm mot exactly sure what that butchery of the English language was supposed to convey
B) Every FF should be a professional, career status is irrelevant.
C) Derp

ETA: I set fires quite regularly, want to make something of it?

As months dragged on with no leads, investigators developed a theory that the fire-starter could actually be a firefighter. While it may seem unlikely, some estimates say that as many as 100 firefighters are arrested every year for arson.

Unlikely? Really?

That's where I'd start.

In California it is quite common for firefighters to start wildfires.



Gee, the baby's crying, time to start a fire!

It is if it's your house he lights off.

This happened in my home town. My Dad and son saw the fire. I remember when they built the complex. The pain remains for a lot of people. Joe Wambaugh wrote a book about him. Horrifying read.

Need more evidence.

He's the chief, he can set fires if he see's a need to.

Failing to see any fault in his actions.




Did I cover them all or did I miss a few?
