Reading Report Firebugs in the FirehouseTime July 8 2002 Main Idea What is it about fire and flames that persuade these firefighters to start fires when they are the ones that should be controlling them 1We are all humans and have a different monopoly on fires 2For all the damage firefighter arsonists do there is no way to tell how many there are in the United States 3There are about 11 million firefighters in the United States but out of that only about 20 are full time The rest are part time or volunteers 4Ken Cabe a former fireman of the South Carolina Forestry and others have found that a fireman arsonist is between 17 and 26 years of age and usually with an unstable home and work place 5For some joining the volunteer firefighters and waiting for a blaze is just not enough they want more 6Some will always have a temptation to set a fire they feel doing this they will be the first one to sound the alarm and receive all the recognition There is always a need for this person to be the hero working side by side with the other firefighters putting out the blaze that he started 7It seems also there can be a financial incentive on doing this For part-time and volunteer firefighters they are normally paid by the fires they put out So this could be away for some to generate there cash flow 8According to a clinical psychologist most boys possibly 90 and a handful of girls maybe about 15 have this fascination with fire and flames This usually happens when a child is four to seven years old These children are very curious and usually will outgrow it and find other interests 9By age nine or ten some of these kids are still into fires very excited about the blaze and the flames from this fire
