Not all firefighters get bored and set fires. Most of us care about our fellow firefighters enough to not risk their lives just so we can go play.

They were young and stupid and NOT representative of the rest of us who volunteer. Just like any other group, there are some bad apples (see story re. Carmel police officer).

Isn't this why you have to take a test to be a firefighter, volunteer or otherwise? So they can rule out the arsonists?

And just what would this "test" be that can detect latent tendencies toward arson???

I think this is ridiculous. My husband is a firefighter and comes home very excited when they had a fire during his shift. This is what firefighters live for. But these kids took this way too far. Fortunately, no one was hurt, firefighters or civilians, when these idiots thought it would be fun to set a house on fire, go to the station to start their shift and then wait for the call to come out. I hope they are ashamed of themselves, because they are an embarrassment to all of the firefighters out there who are truly good people wanting to help those in need.

I take offense to this, stupid volunteers.? yes these two are for doing what they did, but the volunteers who do care and devote their free time to something they care about, give up alot of their perosonal and family time to help someone else when they are having a bad day, jack brown, your more than likely the person when you see a firetruck or police car coming down the road just stay the course, dont pull over and give them the right of way, to busy talking on your cell phone or just dont care, its people like this that are stupid in my point of view

I am sure that you would be grateful if the stupid volunteers showed up to save your family and home. Stupid knows stupid. You really should think about that. I suppose you are one of the idiots that don't get out of the way of the lights and sirens....not thinking they may enroute to save one of your family members.....Shut up if you cant be nice.

I just finished Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. I don't see a problem with this.

Oh, wait. Dystopian future.

And, I found "WOW"s comment about "Stupid Noblesville People!!!!!" funny, as WOW claims to be located in Noblesville. Subtle irony, or misguided attempt at humor? See page C5 for the answer.

This puke really doesn't know about volunteer firefighters. He's probably a jag that gets paid to do it and looks at it as just another job. Firefighters do the are the same being volunteer or paid and both are heros and a few of each are idiots that break the law or say dumb things.
