I love volunteer firefighters. It's so awesome how they all bring their POV's to fender benders and clog up 4 lanes of traffic. They way they put a thousand dollars worth of flashing lights and sirens on their twenty dollar pick-ups............AWESOME.

No you may not get paid and Im not saying all are bad but I have seen ALOT of complaint on the man FD and I think it should be investigated properly...And I think ALL of the volunteers should speak up if they suspect anything from other fire fighters...You may not get paid but this was done so your department could get more stuff..How wrong is that...I just hope all the guilty goes to prison...I know I have a vacant home if it burns I am responsible for any damage to neighbors or anything else people dont think of what it can do to others even if its vacant or abondoned someone beside the department pays for that and its not right...And if these fire fighters cost people money for what they did then they should have to pay them back...I dont understand people these days seems like most people are just down right ignorant and heartless...People we depend on helping us is hurting us

I think they all should go to prison no matter what all 6 mentioned are guilty and should pay for their crimes and arson is a big crime and a few of these have gotten away with it in the past so i don't feel that all firefighters are bad just some and in the end they always get caught

yes you are right they should pay for their crimes.
But just remember we are not all bad. We have families and homes too. It breaks my heart to know that these people once called themselves firefighters and then turn around and do something so bad.Just remember there are people out there that will still help and do what they can to protect others, and if I knew of a fellow firefighter who was doing this , Yes I would turn them in.

these people are not firefighters because a real firefighter knows how dangerous it is to go inside a burning building of any type and they would not want to risk their life for a fire that they started

I can't believe these people lead such boring lives that they have to go out and start fires in order to get a little excitment in their lives.
The courts should show ZERO tolerance for these idiots and put them away for a few years to think about what they've done.
Was there actually a great elected moron that let these folks out on bail?
Watch who you vote for next time.
Remember! Only you can prevent forest fires!
