The Palm Bay Police caught an arsonist trying to start another brush fire here in town this morning at about 4AM.
One of Number Two Daughter's good friends came and spent the night with us last night, as their home is in an area where the power lines were destroyed by the fires and Lord only knows when they will get power back up in those areas. I totally understand the desire for a hot shower and a night's sleep under air conditioning.
It's just hard for me to wrap my massive cranium around the idea that someone sets these fires on purpose.
The grass around here is semi green and crunchy, so it's prime real estate for a good fire to get going.
Plus all the pine trees and palmetto is really meant to burn from time to time to open the seed pods and whatnot, but having these fires in residential areas isn't a good thing.
