"Many communities across the country are experiencing a rash of serial arson-related fires. These types of fires are plaguing many rural and urban communities causing significant loss of life and billions of dollars in property damage, adding to the suffering already being caused by the current economic climate. 'Serial arson' is defined as an offense committed by fire setters who set three or more fires with a significant cooling off period between the fires. 'Serial arsonists' generally set fires for the same reason as other arsonists."
