This is very scary.

I once heard that firebugs first have a fear of fire that somehow reverses itself when the subject is in his/her mid 20's or so.They do a 180 from fear of fires to fascination with them.My guess is that this person experienced a life altering fire when they were very young & possibly lost family members in that blaze.More than likely from Accomac Co as well.

I have bad feeling it is just a matter of time before someone gets hurt.
