    Interview all of the local volunteer firefighters. Lots of these misfits join cause they are obsessed with fire. Also, this area seems to have numerous questionable males joining fire departments. Real suspect characters.

      I’d have to agree with you. Probably one of them that posts pictures of every fire on their facebook and is related to somebody in local office. They have likely already been reported because of their obvious patterns and then those that reported it were targeted by those relations’ friends. That’s how it works in that slum. It’s not rocket science to figure out who has a connection to the places that have burned in the past few years and could relish in the aftermath because they are on scene earlier than most. The politics made that place an armpit where the good people tend to leave if they feel victimized.
