It's not arson if you intentionally set off incendiaries during a fire ban. At least, not if you're in the "Defence" Forces. High temperatures and strong winds failed to deter military brass from playing with fire. Dagg knows why. Maybe their interoperability timetable clashed with common sense.
That's now two incidents this summer where unarmed firefighters have cleaned up after stupid uniforms with weapons. It's becoming easier to separate the heroes from the cowards.
