could be worse. they could be shooting people instead of torching buildings.

True, they could be shooting people. But, if in fact there is a "fire bug", torching a fire station is not just a crime against a building. It is a crime and insult to every member of that department, and to the fire service in general. It is the lowest of crimes that can be committed. To have such little respect for those who lay down their lives for friends, neighbors and often perfect strangers is beyond reproach. If in fact this fire was caused deliberatly I would hope that anyone who may have seen anything suspicious in the area, or heard anything related to this fire will speak up. Remember when we were all kids and the firemen would come to our schools? Remember how we looked up to them as heroes?

Yea, and since they choose to burn fire stations & ambulance halls down that is a HUGE inconvenience to surrounding communities just to save your stupid ass from a fire or emergency call
