    During my career I've heard of a lot of cases of Security Guards doing this. I dealt with one myself. A guy covering during another's vacation really wanted a full time job. Just before his week was to finish he discovered fires in 2 seperate public washrooms & put them out. This was not a downtown hotel. No one walked in off of the street & there were no late check ins in the middle of the night. I couldn't fire him for the fires because I couldn't prove it, but I fired him because after he called me to report what happened I told him to increase his patrols. I found out that he spent the rest of the night at the front desk. (There was no need to increase the patrol to try & find the person who had set the fires because he knew who had set them .

      The "hero" complex, or worse, the "justify my existence" complex. How lovely.

        Fire bugs have been found in the FD as well. Motive might be different, but the result is the same.

          Especially in "paid on call" departments.

            Such as the one that started that huge Forest fire in the southwest a couple years ago.

              This reminds me of those two cartoon boys Beavis and Butthead playing with a cigarette lighter. "Fire! Fire! Heh heh".
