I was thinking about writing a short story about a guy who's a hired arsonist and is basically responsible for all of a certain areas fires. Ex. Developers are having trouble selling houses due to an old abandoned eye soar of a bar and they need it cheaply removed. Thats just one idea but i don't really know yet.
Anyone know if people really get paid to do this on a regular basis or if anyone has written anything like it? or if you think its just a horrible idea for a story?
If so, anyone know if theirs anyway to make fires look accidental or not human caused?
