Wow what a strange story. A firefighter would know that a second fire would raise some eyebrows about the origin of the fires. Its amazing how once a person gets something in their mind they would do unrational things to get what they want. Is this the only way this couple may see another child into their lives? This story has left my head spinning with questions!

What a nice story this would have been to tell the little one: "I endangered firefighters' lives so you could be here!"

"No wish to hurt anyone"? I guess the firefighters who responded to that call were protected by the magic force field of your good intentions, huh Ralph?

Lock his ass UP!
