An American firefighter has been charged with arson after as many as eight fires.

It is believed that Adam Selbee loved responding to emergency calls so much that he started several fires of his own.

Selbee, 19, from Indiana, may have set fire to ifive buildings and and three hay bales because of his thrill of a ‘911′ call.

He was arrested after police officers placed a tracking device on his vehicle.

Cops had become suspicious after they discovered that Selbee was either the person to report the fire or, more often than not. the first firefighter on the scene.
